Annual Appeal


For over 140 years, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens has been devoted to the study of the Greek world. Whether our students and scholars are exploring Greece, excavating at ancient sites, studying in our remarkable libraries, or conducting research in our state-of-the-art laboratory — we are one School, with many faces.

The landscape that makes the American School is a rich mosaic connecting to the many facets of the Greek world. Greece’s vibrant history, from prehistory to the present, can speak to us directly; our mission is to communicate what we learn to the world. Generations of benefactors, board members, faculty, staff, students, and friends, all shape our American School family. You make our distinguished legacy of teaching, research, leadership, and innovation possible.

We invite you to continue your support today with a tax-exempt gift, which will help us write the next chapter of our remarkable story. Your philanthropic support provides for exceptional scholarly opportunities, excavations in the heart of ancient Greece, and advanced research in our world-renowned libraries and laboratory. In addition, your contribution sustains our efforts to inform the global classroom through our webinars, lectures, exhibitions, public programs and award-winning films and publications.

We thank you for your thoughtful gift and your unwavering support of our mission.
