About

Donors

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 all who have supported CfA over the past year.  Last year we devised a number of recognition categories and to make it more fun than conventional labels we gave them names from the Classical world, a mixture of Greek and Roman which we hope will raise a smile.

We value each and every donor who supports the cause of bringing Classics into state schools.  We wouldn’t be where we are today without each one of you. A very big thank you for your role in helping us to develop CfA’s grant programme that so successfully enriches the education of increasing numbers of pupils in our 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.
