The British School at Rome

Leave a legacy and make history in Rome.

For over a century, The British School at Rome has fostered a unique community of researchers and scholars. The faculty’s work continues to push creative boundaries in a variety of academic disciplines relating to Roman and Italian studies, including the visual arts, humanities and social sciences. This vibrant, interdisciplinary environment is supported by the BSR's world-class library which houses an extraordinary collection and welcomes scholars and students from all over the world. 

A legacy campaign for the next hundred years

In March this year, Gifted completed a Feasibility Study, which highlighted the potential for a transformative legacy giving programme. The Study revealed widespread support for engaging the BSR's community in making their own, enduring piece of history; whether through funding Awards, maintaining the outstanding library or giving to on-going refurbishment projects. And, crucially, it provided a road map for the next phase of planning which will focus on securing strong leadership and undertaking a thorough evaluation of prospective givers.

As the British School at Rome prepares itself for a second century of excellence in research-led, creative practice, together with the next set of fundraising challenges, the team at Gifted are looking forward to working alongside the School to deliver the Legacy Programme during its first year.

“The BSR is a global leader and a pioneer in its field,” says Gifted’s Amy Stevens. “The ethos and energy of the institution are remarkable and we have no doubt that it has the power to attract impactful giving from those who care deeply about the institution’s work.”
