Our funding comes from an increasingly broad range of donors including private individuals, philanthropists and family and other charitable trusts and foundations.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the past year, enriching the education of pupils in our state schools through Classics. We could not do it without you! We devised a number of recognition categories, naming them from the Classical world, and have added two more since last year: Tribunes (giving £300pa) and Quaestors (giving £300pm, £3,600pa). Whatever your level of support, you have contributed to a growing momentum of change in the landscape of Classics in state schools.

Our donors have enabled CfA to establish real momentum. Whatever your level of support all of us at CfA are profoundly grateful. The feedback from our growing number of schools, both teachers and pupils, brims with enthusiasm. Which means your money is being put to excellent use, and providing an ever stronger platform on which to recruit many more donors all the way from Centurions to Olympians.
