The Center for Hellenic Studies depends on the generous contributions of those in the San Diego Greek community. The Hellenic Cultural Society and its members have contributed to the center, including $25,000 from the organization and a $1 million gift from an anonymous donor to encourage and inspire additional support. The local Greek community was an instrumental force in garnering support—totaling $1.5 million—to establish the Gerry and Jeannie Ranglas Chair in Ancient Greek History (2005); Alkiviadis Vassiliadis Chair in Byzantine Greek History (2005); and the Nicholas Family Endowed Chair in Modern Greek History (2008). In addition, the Hellenic Cultural Society donated more than 2,000 volumes of historical documents to the UC San Diego Library.

Gifts from alumni, parents and friends play an important role in keeping the Center for Hellenic Studies at the forefront of academic and research excellence. Donations are needed to help promising graduate students study and pioneer new creative territory. By offering competitive graduate student recruitment fellowships and graduate student prizes, the Center for Hellenic Studies will be able to encourage and enable talented scholars to excel. Your gifts will provide the opportunity to establish a lasting legacy at UC San Diego.
