2017 Annual Fund

The Amarna Trust’s Annual Fund seeks to establish support for the continuation of work at Amarna. Every penny of your gift will be put towards the exploration, documentation and protection of Egypt’s one-time capital. In 2017, we are asking you to get involved with:

  • Excavating the Great Aten Temple
  • Conserving our coffins
  • Archiving our pottery data
  • Publishing the South Tombs Cemetery project
  • Our Field Station and Office

Our Giving Circles

You can be a part of something extraordinary by joining one of our giving circles.

Akhetaten Circle
The Akhetaten Circle

The Akhetaten Circle brings supporters together to share in our work. To join, we ask you to consider a gift of £10 per month (or greater). In appreciation for this gift, you will receive a donor pin, be included in our annual donor list, and you will receive an invitation to a special event in Cambridge in December. The Akhetaten Circle is proof that great things can happen when people come together to support a passion. It takes only 33 members giving £10 per month, for example, to fund our coffin conservation project for 2017.

To join the Akhetaten Circle, please visit our Justgiving page and choose ‘Make a monthly donation’ at the top right, then choose a sum of £10.00 or greater on the next page. The entirety of your gift will support our Annual Fund.

Please leave an email address so that we can contact you as required.

Meryra Circle
The Meryra Circle

The Meryra Circle was established to thank our most loyal and committed supporters. To join, we ask you to consider a gift of £500 per year. In appreciation for this gift, you will receive a donor pin and be included in our annual donor list. You will also receive an invitation to a special event in Cambridge in December, during which you will be part of an exclusive dinner. If you are a UK high-rate tax-payer, your gift can also count towards a tax-deduction.

To join the Meryra Circle, please visit our dedicated Justgiving page and enter a gift amount of £500 (or greater) when prompted.

Please leave an email address so that we can contact you as required.

Gift Aid on United Kingdom donations

The Trust is able to benefit from the present UK tax legislation by reclaiming tax on donations from UK tax-payers under the Gift Aid scheme, which increases the value of the gift by nearly a third (there are further tax advantages for donors who pay at higher rates).

United States of America donations

For residents of the USA, tax-efficient gifts can be made through two 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organizations, and by requesting that the gift be used to support work at Tell el-Amarna in Egypt.

The first is the Amarna Research Foundation, which also invites membership. Members recieve a separate newsletter. The Foundation supports research into Amarna and the Amarna Period more generally, and our Amarna Project.

The second is the Cambridge in America Foundation, which makes grants directly to the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research in Cambridge and hence to the Amarna Project.
