Your support for the 2013 Alumni & Friends Fund


AFF - your gift

We are currently in the midst of our annual telephone fundraising campaign, in which we will be contacting 2,000 of our alumni.  Our students would like to talk to you about your lives and adventures since leaving SOAS and ask for your support towards the SOAS Alumni & Friends Fund.

With calls made to alumni in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and the US, and we are pleased to report on the fantastic support from our alumni and friends. With the campaign reaching its halfway point, we are just £20,000 away from reaching our pledge target of £60,000. With your help we hope to exceed this target and increase this year’s support towards students at SOAS.

It is the commitment of our alumni which makes it possible for SOAS to remain a unique, exciting and inspirational institution we are all justly proud of and love. We feel immensely grateful for everyone’s kind words and generous gifts, and this year’s Alumni & Friends Fund donations will continue to support our core funding areas of scholarships, student

projects and grants for refugee or at risk academics.

We’ll be updating you with the result of our fundraising campaign and tell you how your donations are supporting SOAS students. We also hope that you will keep talking to us and sharing your news and ideas. For us, our fourth telephone campaign is another busy and happy period, and we hope that it is also a very positive experience for all those alumni who receive calls from our team.

P.S. If you received a missed call from a London number in the past couple of weeks, it could have been one of our current students trying to reach you.
