Our funding comes from an increasingly broad range of donors including individuals, philanthropists and family and other charitable trusts and foundations. We organise our donor recognition in categories inspired by the classical world, and publish them each year in our newsletter and on our website. 

Olympians (£100,000+)

The highest of our recognition levels, our extraordinarily generous Olympians receive the benefits available to all other levels as well as a highly personalised and rewarding giving experience through their gift to Classics for All.

Heroes (£25,000 - £99,999)

Our magnificent Heroes receive the same benefits as our Consuls and also receive inside updates from our Executive and Programme Directors as well as an invitation to join our Development Committee.

Consuls (£10,000 - £24,999)

Our Consuls receive the same benefits as our Senators with the opportunity to visit a school or network to see our work in action, always a rewarding and enriching day.

Senators (£5,000 - £9,999)

Our Senators receive the same benefits as our Praetorians and are also invited to at least one additional exclusive event a year, such as a talk, reception or dinner.

Praetorians (£1,000 - £4,999)

Our Praetorians receive occasional updates on our work and events and are publicly acknowledged on our website and in our printed newsletter. Praetorians also receive priority invitations to events as well as an invitation to our annual reception at Kallos Gallery, Mayfair.

Centurions (£100-£299) and Centurion Maximus (£300-£999)
