Donate in memory

A large number of donors and supporters of classics are academics, captains of industry and accomplished leaders in their respective fields.

An honorary gift allows you to acknowledge publicly the achievements and accomplishments of an esteemed colleague within your department or organisation by providing a gift to Classics for All bearing his/her name. Such gifts are particularly popular in academic institutions and organisations where a senior colleague is retiring or has reached a particular milestone in his or her career.

The honorary gift will be acknowledged in our literature and on our website and, if you wish, we can arrange for one of our trustees to present the gift to the beneficiary. For larger gifts, we can discuss naming in your colleague’s honour a particular activity or project that we fund. With sufficient notice, we shall invite one of our Honorary Patrons to present the gift.

If you would like to discuss an honorary gift in more detail, please feel free to call Jules Mann, our executive director, on 07809 256839 or send an email to at any time.

Classics for All have received several donations in memory Professor Donald Russell FBA, Emeritus Professor of classical literature at St John’s Oxford, who sadly died on 9 February at the age of 99.

Professor Russell was a dedicated tutor and a leading figure in classical scholarship, specialising in Greek imperial literature, Latin imperial prose, and ancient literary criticism. Professor Russell’s funeral took place on Monday 9 March in the Chapel of St John’s College. It was kindly requested that donations in his memory be made to Classics for All, for which we are humbled and grateful.
