Sponsor Student Donations - Chalkboard

Sponsor a school subscription to the LRB and help to inspire a new generation of readers.

Last year we introduced some special student subscription offers, and many of our readers generously wrote in asking whether they could donate an LRB subscription to an anonymous student. To that end, we have set up a donations page here where you can contribute towards providing a school's LRB subscription to A-level students across the UK.

How does it work?

Just choose how much you would like to give and click ‘donate now’, which will take you directly to PayPal. For every £40 in donations we receive (rounded up), we will set up a one-year print subscription to the LRB (normally £105) for a school or sixth-form college in the UK.


Don’t just take it from us...

‘Without doubt the London Review of Books is one of the consistently best reads out there. While others are succumbing to the Twitter effect and continue to downgrade their published works into bite-sizes lacking that cannot ever get into sufficient depth, LRB is maintaining a platform for high quality, well-researched and excellently written/edited articles and analysis.’

‘Excellent reviews and consistently thoughtful writing on all sorts of subjects. The LRB is a vital antidote to “fake news”.’

‘Outstanding publication, with in-depth coverage of a wide range of subjects and topics. I always enjoy the articles on literature and the arts, and I've been particularly impressed with the political coverage both of UK and international issues. For example, the recent piece on Angola was most interesting and comprehensive. Another impressive aspect of LRB is its Letters page, where knowledgeable readers comment on and sometimes correct articles from previous editions. The LRB is excellent value, and provides a fortnightly dose of intellectual stimulation, every time.’
