SOAS Centenary Fundraising Campaign

“His Excellency Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber has been an acclaimed and generous funder of education for many years and SOAS is extremely fortunate to be able to call him a hugely valued friend and supporter. We are very grateful for his continued support of the LMEI and its work to promote deeper understanding of the Middle East in the wider world.” Professor Paul Webley, Director, SOAS.

Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber has donated a gift of £1 million not only enabling the relocation of the London Middle East Institute to a prestigious and more accessible new home at 21 Russell Square but also supporting SOAS’ Centenary Fundraising Campaign celebrating the institution’s first 100 years in 2016.

HE Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber is a long-standing supporter of SOAS and the £1 million gift is the most recent in a series of substantial donations. The MBI Al Jaber Foundation’s support dates to the 1990s and includes a significant number of Masters level scholarships as well as supporting academic activities and an endowment. HE Sheikh Mohamed is the sole Founding Patron and Donor of the London Middle East Institute (LMEI) at SOAS, and endowed the post of the LMEI Director.
