How you can help
We need to raise £125,000 ($160,000 or €150,000) for the next two years of geoscientific and archaeological fieldwork and research.
We are optimistic we can soon bring the current stage of the Odysseus Unbound project to a significant and successful conclusion, so we are actively seeking funding to bring this about.
Only the generous gifts of time and funding from our supporters, patrons, sponsors and collaborators have allowed us to reach this critical stage.
If you would like to contribute to our work, whether it is with academic knowledge and expertise, equipment or by a donation or sponsorship, we would like to hear from you.
However you can help us, it is greatly appreciated.
How we spend your donation
As a charity, we have very low operating costs. We have no employees and all our personnel give their time voluntarily. This allows us to spend almost all the funds we raise on the key research required to advance our understanding of ancient Ithaca.
Like every organisation, we have operating costs such as marketing and publicity, travel costs and accounting fees, which amount to around £6,000 each year.
The research projects that we undertake in partnership with universities are significantly more expensive, and cost approximately £45,000 – £50,000 per annum and are funded through a combination of individual donations, donations from charitable trusts and corporate sponsorship.
