Giving to Ascanius
Dear Friends of Ascanius:
As we begin to wrap up another year, we are very grateful to have this opportunity to take a step back and appreciate our accomplishments, our supporters, and all of our dedicated volunteers.
The commitments we received from our donors and volunteers last year are what allowed us to successfully accomplish our 2023 goals. We continued to provide free Latin teaching materials, offer high quality publications for sale, and offering an in-person Let's Learn Latin workshop. However, our biggest impact for elementary and middle school students came through the grants which we were able to award to individuals all across the country. For the 2022-2023 school year, we awarded a professional development grant to 10 teachers, a Classical Promise Grant to three students and teachers, and the Rudolph Masciantonio "Classics for All" Grant to five teachers.
With 2024 right around the corner, we are looking forward to continuing to publicize and offer these high-impact grants to teachers, students, and Latin programs across the country. We are especially excited about the new theme for the Rudolph Masciantonio "Classics for All" Grant: Ludamus! Let’s Play! Activities for the Latin Classroom.
For more information about the grants we offer, check out our annual newsletter, Iter Ascanii. Not only can you read more about those grants, but you will also find reports and photos from many of our 2022-2023 recipients!
We are thankful for our donors like you, who help us to continue to promote the study of Latin and the Classical world, especially at the elementary and middle school levels. We hope you will help us to continue supporting teachers and students nationwide through our grants. You can make a donation via our website or by mailing a check. All $25+ donations will receive our new magnet, featuring student artwork.
Thank you for your continued support of our organization. Together, we can truly make a difference for young students!
