Giving to Ascanius
A message from Barbara Caceres, Marketing & Development Committee Chair:
As we begin to wrap up 2016, we are taking this opportunity to look back at what we have been able to accomplish in the past year. Because of generous individuals such as you, last year we were able to provide several exciting opportunities to students and teachers. This past year, we:
- Awarded FIVE Classical Promise Scholarships to high school and college students, who conducted Latin enrichment programs for children in their own communities.
- Conducted FOUR free Let's Learn Latin workshops for elementary school and middle school teachers in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and also in Virginia, held in partnership with CAMWS.
- Hosted a Roman Explorations workshop in July, for elementary/middle school teachers and homeschool instructors, on-site in Rome. They learned about the Latin language, as well as the culture, myth, and history of the ancient Romans.
- Offered high-quality publications, and also helped teachers to learn more about using our publications by providing a free webinar series.
We are so very thankful for our donors like you, without whom our programs would not be possible. With your help, we continued to share the study of Latin and the Classical world with other students and teachers all across the country. Now with the new year right around the corner, our all-volunteer organization aspires to continue fine-tuning our mission while strengthening our core programs. Please consider making a donation to help us fund our 2017 initiatives, including our popular Roman Explorers half-day student programs! Any amount helps us, but please consider donating a special amount to fund one of our exciting initiatives!
You can help fund our programs by donating online via our website, via our Facebook page (click "Donate"), or by mailing in your donation to P.O. Box 320536, Boston, MA 02132. You might also wish to consider becoming a member of Ascanius. Our members receive a bi-monthly e-newsletter full of new teaching ideas, as well as discounts on publications and contests. For the low cost of $25, you can receive these benefits and help us at the same time, as 100% of the membership fee is used for supporting our programs.
Thank you for your continued support of our organization, and for believing in our mission to inspire lifelong learning about Latin, Greek, and the ancient Greco-Roman world. Together, we can truly make a difference!
