Annual Appeal

ASCSA 140th Anniversary


Since 1881, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens has been telling the story of Greece’s illustrious past. As we celebrate our 140th anniversary, we must thank all those who have been a part of this ongoing voyage of discovery. To the generations of alumni/ae, benefactors, board members, faculty, friends, staff, and students: we are profoundly grateful for your contributions and honored to count you among the American School family. Without you, our distinguished legacy of teaching, research, leadership, and innovation would not have been possible.

We invite you to make a tax-exempt gift today and help write the next chapter of our remarkable story. Your philanthropic support will enable us to continue providing unique opportunities to explore Greece, excavate at ancient sites, study in our renowned libraries, and conduct research in our state-ofthe-art laboratory. In addition, your contribution will benefit the global classroom through our wide range of livestreamed webinars, lectures, exhibitions, public programming, and award-winning short films and publications.

With much gratitude for your support,

Jenifer Neils, Director of the School

George T. Orfanakos, Executive Director
