The Malta Classics Association is a voluntary organisation that is primarily reliant on the financial support of its members and friends to function and pursue its projects and aims. Over the years, the generosity of several members has allowed us to bring Classics and the Classical World to so many people both in Malta and Gozo as well as abroad through a number of public lectures, conferences, courses and publications. In recognition of this generosity, the MCA launched the λειτουργία (leitourgia) initiative to formalise and streamline the way donations are received and processed by the Malta Classics Association. If you are the owner or administrator for a company registered in Malta, your donation may benefit from the Government of Malta’s tax rebate scheme, more information on which may be accessed here.

The initiative’s name, λειτουργία, is inspired by the Athenian tradition of soliciting funding for public projects from the citizen body’s wealthiest members. Inclusion among Athens’ annual list of λειτουργοί (leitourgoi) was a matter of great pride for these citizens as it gave them a formal way in which to publicly display their patriotism and love for Athens.
