Time flies when you’re busy with exciting projects and endeavors.

Can you believe it’s nearly November? And with the onset of autumn, pumpkins, and more candy than anyone should ever eat comes the time when we kick off our annual fundraiser.

As a non-profit we rely on the generosity of like-minded folks who believe in what we do. Without you, our work would be much less extensive and our future less promising. Without you we would only be able to scratch the surface of fulfilling our vision. And, in fact, truth be told, we’re only just beginning. There is much work to be done and we’re excited about the possibilities. We hope you will consider how you might join us in the coming weeks as we prepare for the future.

This year we’ve decided to kick off our fundraising with the first week of a 10-week auction that begins…well, today.

Thanks to the generosity of other organizations who’ve partnered with us we’re glad to be able to offer some of the finest resources and tools in Christian classical education including:

First Form Latin from Memoria Press
– 2 curricula from The Institute For Excellence in Writing
– A collection of books from Intercollegiate Studies Institute
– 2 curricula from Classical Academic Press
– 2 music-based curricula from Professor Carol Reynolds,
– 4 hours of headmaster coaching from CiRCE consultant Dr. Peter Vandre Brake
– 10 spots in a special one-time-only web-based class with Andrew Kern on “Hamlet and Creation”
– 2 spots at the 2012 CiRCE Conferece in Louisville next summer
– and much more.

How the Auction Will Work:

Each week we will feature three items upon which you can bid, one of which will always be a spot in Andrew Kern’s “Hamlet and Creation” webinar (so at the end of ten weeks all ten spots in the webinar will be filled). See the schedule below for the weeks during which each item will be offered.

The auction will be hosted by 32auctions.com and you will be able to pay your winning bid via PayPal, any credit card, or check.
