Support a unique environment for curiosity-driven research
The London Institute is a rare place where scientists can wholly dedicate themselves to unlocking the secrets of the universe and our role within it. Unlike universities, the Institute does not receive tuition or government subsidies. Its continued running relies on private donations from the UK and around the world.
At a time when government support for fundamental discoveries is waning, the London Institute plays a unique role in safeguarding basic science. Every donation you make has an amplifying effect, enabling the Institute’s growing number of scientists to see further and attract grant support.
