About

Donors

Our funding comes from an increasingly broad range of donors including private individuals, philanthropists and family and other charitable trusts and foundations. This page celebrates our donors from 2018, who helped us reach 200 schools in the year and further expand our widening reach of regional classics networks.

We organise our donor recognition under a number of categories, naming them from the Classical world, and we publish them each year in our newsletter and on our website. These are (click on the name to go to that section): Centurions £100+, Tribunes £300+, Praetorians £1,000+, Quaestors £3,600+, Senators £5,000+, Consuls £10,000+, Heroes £50,000+, Olympians £100,000+.

Whatever your level of support, you are changing the landscape of Classics in state schools; we could not do it without you!
