President's Circle

The President's Circle recognises those closest friends and supporters who make leadership gifts of between £10,000 and £49,999 a year.

In 2014 Imperial appointed its first President as a means to take forward the tradition of excellence in research and education into a new century, where collaboration increasingly happens at an international scale.

As a member of the President’s Circle you are providing the College with the resources to confront new societal challenges as and when they arise. Your generosity enables us to open up new research horizons and offer our students an exceptional educational experience. A gift at this level has immediate impact, helping Imperial to take a leading role in addressing the challenges of the twenty-first century.

A purple President's Circle badge  Members of the President’s Circle receive:

  • A commemorative lapel pin
  • An invitation to an exclusive annual event for circle members hosted by the President
  • Invitations to high-profile College events through out the year
  • Special recognition as a President's Circle member in the College's Annual Fundraising Report
