SCS-WCC COVID-19 Relief Fund Raffle and Auction

There is an Auction and Raffle under way to support the SCS-WCC COVID-19 Relief Fund (Official WCC Website for the FundProfile of the fund in Eidolon).  Since its foundation this past spring the fund has given away nearly $70,000 to more than 150 graduate students and contingent faculty in need. Many thanks to all those organizations and individuals who have donated via WCC (The Women’s Classical Caucus) or SCS (The Society for Classical Studies).

You can help in several ways.

RIGHT NOW, please consider buying raffle tickets for one of the three drawings: 1) an unbound archival version of the Barrington Atlas; 2) Lifetime Membership to the SCS; 3) 5 years of AIA-SCS annual meeting registration costs. The cost of the tickets goes directly into the fund for immediate use. The drawing will be held live on Facebook noon EST, Friday, Sept 11.

Also, if you are an author or a crafter or have a special talent to share, consider offering your book, handiwork, or services for auction. Before you do so, take a look at other offers  so you get a sense of the tone and style of the auction. Once you have done this, just fill out the auction item donation form and Liv Yarrow, who is running this auction, will be in touch.

Bidding opens 9 am EST, Tuesday Sept 8 and closes noon EST, Friday Sept 11. There are some truly fantastic items.


Our biggest goal is to raise awareness of the fund, so that we not only build the donor base but also help ensure those who need the fund know about it. To learn more about and apply to the fund, go to the WCC page.

Thank you for your support and generosity!

Executive Director, SCS
