Classics for All is participating in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020, a match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled. This annual fundraising campaign, which we have participated in for the past three 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 Matthew Lindsey-Clark, Roger Barnes, Ian and Caroline Laing, Geoffrey and Caroline de Jager, and our Big Give Champion: The Reed Foundation.
The Christmas Challenge 2020 will take place from 12pm 1 December 2020 – 12pm 8 December 2020 when donations from online supporters are doubled.
Donations must be made through The Big Give’s online platform, so please visit this page from noon on Tuesday 1 December to donate.
Your donation being doubled means that we can reach even more pupils in state 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 state schools in areas of deprivation.
- Give 150 teacher the skills to teach classics sustainably.
- Ensure 6,600 young people are inspired by classics (many for the first time).
- Help 60 new state schools share inclusive approaches to classics teaching through our dynamic Regional Classics Networks.
