The demand for Civitas Schools is extensive and constant. We charge parents between £2 and £4 per session, with a half-price reduction for subsequent children from the same family. However, these fees cover only a fraction of the costs.
We do not seek or accept any government funding in order to preserve our complete independence. As such, we rely on voluntary donations to fund the schools. Donations come from a variety of sources – individuals, family foundations, grant-making organisations and corporate sponsors. We are extremely grateful for donations of any size.
The Director of Civitas Schools is available to discuss funding and details of the project costs in more detail. In particular, we are looking for funding for new schools in London to reduce our waiting lists, and funding for summer schools.
A number of our schools are now funded entirely by particular supporters. Among others who ask to remain anonymous, supporters include:
The Stationers’ Foundation
Funds three of our Saturday Schools. Two in King’s Cross and one in Kilburn.
Specifically supports our 11am-2pm Saturday classes in Kilburn.
The newspaper funds our Wapping Saturday School.
Springer Nature sponsors the Springer Nature Saturday School in King's Cross.
The Freeman Family
The Freeman Family funds our Harlesden Thursday evening classes and give us free use of the Freeman Family Centre.
