Support the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs

The Imperial Founders' Pledge is an opportunity for student and alumni founders to “pay it forward” by pledging to make a philanthropic gift to Imperial in the future to support the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators.

Whether it’s supporting a specific initiative such as the Imperial Enterprise Lab or Advanced Hackspace, supporting a student who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend university with a scholarship or funding research on critical issues such as climate change or infectious diseases, your gift could help support Imperial’s innovators and entrepreneurs and fund solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

 

How does it work?

The concept couldn’t be simpler. Sign the non-binding pledge and be part of our community of pledgers. When you experience an exit or other liquidity event and are ready to make your gift, let us know and we’ll work with you to plan your gift ensuring it makes a difference to an area you’re passionate about. You’ll have full control over the timing, amount, and designation of your gift.

 

What am I committing to?

There is no minimum commitment, every gift to Imperial is deeply appreciated and enhances the College’s mission to drive positive change through innovation and entrepreneurship.

By making the Imperial Founders’ Pledge, you are incorporating philanthropy into your growth mindset and inspiring others to do the same. You are also joining an exceptional community who have publicly signalled their intent to support future generations of innovators and entrepreneurs at Imperial College London.
