We’re participating in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge – will you help?

Join us for the UK’s largest matched funding campaign: between 3 and 10 December, your donation of £5 or more will be doubled, meaning you’ll be able to help even more pupils in areas of socio-economic deprivation to study classics.

Thanks to the generosity of Geoffrey and Caroline de Jager, Ian and Caroline Laing and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we’re able to raise an amazing £100,000 through this year’s campaign. This will help to introduce a further 6,000 pupils and 150 teachers to classical mythology, philosophy, archaeology and languages.

Every pound donated on the Big Give website to Classics for All’s ‘Raising Aspiration through Classics’ Christmas Challenge campaign (between noon 3 to noon 10 December) will be matched pound for pound until we reach our ultimate goal of £100,000*.

To participate, visit our page on The Big Give’s website.

Please help us spread the word about this campaign through social media or by requesting flyers (email so that we can tell more people about our work to bring classics to state schools.

*Gift Aid is not matched but will bring an added bonus to Classics for All.
