The Fabian Society warmly welcomes the support of partners and funders. There are a number of different ways that your organisation can work with and support the Fabian Society.
- The Fabian Society offers a comprehensive range of partnership opportunities within our events programme which range from large, national public conferences to private invitation-only expert roundtables and dinners. Each year we also run one of the largest fringe programmes at Labour party conference and have a presence at other political parties’ conferences.
- The Fabian Society produces publications, including books, pamphlets and policy reports. Many of our publications are distributed to the entire Fabian membership as well as to key stakeholders within Westminster. The Society also publishes the quarterly Fabian Review magazine which has a circulation of 7,500 including parliamentarians, policy makers and Fabian Society members throughout the country. Advertising, sponsorship and supplement opportunities are available. To see our full range of existing publications, please visit our publications page.
- Fabian research projects include policy development projects and public attitudes studies involving qualitative and/or quantitative fieldwork. We also conduct major policy commissions and inquiries.
Please contact Alex Sanderson, our director of partnerships and events, to discuss opportunities for partnerships in more detail.

The society’s affiliation to the Labour party means we are not eligible to be a charity. However our individual projects are frequently funded by charities and charitable trusts, when they are satisfied that the work in question advances their own charitable purposes.
The Fabian Society is grateful for the support of external partners. The Fabian Society is accountable to its members and all sponsorship must be open and transparent. Details of all funding of £5,000 or more will be published, as part of our commitment to financial transparency.
The society only pursues sponsorship for projects that advance the aims of the Fabian Society and does not undertake work at the behest of others merely to obtain funding. The Fabian Society is not a lobbying organisation and does not accept funding to provide access to policy makers and politicians.
The Fabian Society does not accept funding from organisations whose activities the society deems to be unethical or who association with would damage the reputation of the Society. This includes, but is not limited to certain arms exporters (such as those exporting arms to regimes which violate human rights and manufacturers of landmines), manufacturers of tobacco and pornography, and companies whose activities in respect of employment, discrimination, the environment, taxation, corruption, intrusions on privacy and consumer protection are regarded as unacceptable). The general secretary shall decide whether this rule may apply to a specific organisation.
