LIT Foundation

LIT Foundation

The LIT Foundation is dedicated to helping achieve the mission and goals of the Institute. LIT is a registered charity, No. 10923, through which funds raised by the activities of the Foundation are donated to the Institute. The Foundation shares a common purpose to assist LIT, its students, and faculty/staff in meeting current and future needs. "The aspiration for excellence and relevance of the Campus Development plan is embodied in the development vision - we will create places where people want to be - hubs of education and research, enterprise, sport, culture and community."

Inspired by Nelson's Mandela's philosophy of "education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world", LIT and the LIT Foundation are motivated to support access to education to all. Through the Foundation and its friends and supporters, we foster partnerships and provide opportunities of mutual benefit with alumni, individuals, trusts and foundations and the corporate sector to become involved in student scholarships, enterprise support, capital development as well as academic and research programmes.​
