Support us

Supporting our work

The Iris Project is run by volunteers and without core funding. We rely entirely on grants and donations from generous individuals and organisations to carry out our work. Our projects wouldn't exist without the people who support us through volunteering, donations and fundraising on our behalf. By supporting us you can make a huge difference to the schools and pupils we work with, allowing us to continue to improve the work we do with schools around the country.

Make a donation

Make a donation online now and help Iris's work in inner city state schools. Every penny will go towards improving and expanding our projects. Whether you want to help us bring our Literacy Through Latin project into more schools or help support our Community Classics Centre, your contribution really can do incredible things.


Host a fundraising event at home or at work

Hosting an event at work or at home is a great opportunity to get together with your friends, family and colleagues while helping The Iris Project. Have you thought about organising a traditional afternoon tea, Sunday lunch or even a dinner party to raise funds for The Iris Project?

An event for friends is a good way to talk about some of the work that Iris does and a chance to invite your friends to support us.

Sponsored events

Do you think you could run a marathon to help us widen educational opportunities in state schools? If not, perhaps you have your own idea on a sponsored event or fundraising activity.

The more inventive and creative you are, the more money you can raise.

To let us know about your sponsored event for The Iris Project please contact us through the site.

Thank you!
