How you can help

We need to raise £125,000 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, sponsors and collaborators have enabled 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.

UK Taxpayers - Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.

A Gift Aid declaration by a UK taxpayer allows the Odysseus Unbound Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to the Odysseus Unbound Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like the Odysseus Unbound Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that the Odysseus Unbound Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate.

When the Odysseus Unbound Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation.

Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a UK taxpayer and that you would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year.

Furthermore, if you are a higher rate taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office.

If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Rigorous academic research is at the heart of the Odysseus Unbound project.  We have links with universities in the UK, Greece and globally.

The project is uniquely cross-disciplinary.  Already, one PhD thesis has resulted from an academic partnership between the project and Edinburgh University.  We are always open to offers of academic collaboration to advance geoscientific, archaeological or classical history studies.

For academic or corporate collaboration, please email our Project Coordinator: [email protected].

Thank you.
