Annual Appeal


Since 1881, the American School has been devoted to the study of Greece’s past. By analyzing ancient DNA, excavating important sites, tracing Byzantine currents, unpacking urban design, or digging into the archives, we make Greece’s vibrant history part of our present.

Remarkable libraries and archives, a state-of-the-art laboratory, robust full-year and summer academic programs, and seminal excavations are central to our success. But it is people who have made the difference. Generations of benefactors, board members, faculty, staff, students, and friends have shaped the American School into a remarkable research center whose mission is to create and share knowledge of Greece, from prehistory to the present.

We therefore invite you to continue your support today with a tax-exempt gift that will help us craft the next chapter of our remarkable story. Your philanthropic support promotes exceptional scholarly opportunities, excavations in the heart of ancient Greece, and advanced research in our world-renowned libraries and laboratory. Moreover, your contribution is essential in supporting our live and online webinars, lectures, exhibitions, public programs, and award-winning publications and films.

We thank you for your thoughtful consideration and dedicated support of our mission. Together we are putting the pieces of Greece’s past back together.
