Classics for All is participating in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021, a match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled. This annual fundraising campaign, which we have participated in for the past four years, gives our supporters the opportunity to make a donation with twice the impact. 

This year, donations will be matched thanks to our generous supporters Roger Barnes, Christopher A Clarke, Jeannie Cohen, Julian Hardwick, Sir Rupert Jackson, Dr Peter Jones, William Lawrence, Matthew Lindsey-Clark, Philip Miles and our Big Give Champion: The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust.

The Christmas Challenge 2021 will take place from 30th November 2021 – 12pm 7th December 2021 when donations from online supporters are doubled.

Donations must be made through The Big Give's online platform, so please click here on the 30th November to donate:


Your donation being doubled means that we can reach even more pupils in state primary schools across the country, helping them to discover the joy of learning classics.

Our target is to raise £50,000 in online donations, which will be matched by donations from our pledgers and Big Give Champion. This will allow us to:

  • Introduce classics into 60 new primary schools.
  • Give 240 teacher the skills to teach classics sustainably.
  • Ensure 7,200 young people are inspired by the myths, languages and cultures of the ancient world.
  • Pilot new online resources in 10 primary schools.
  • Help 10 new primary schools in the South West teach Latin for the first time.
