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 devised a number of recognition categories, naming them from the Classical world, and now follow a tradition of publishing Centurions to Olympians 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!
