Friends of Yeronisos

The Yeronisos Island Excavation is financed almost entirely through private donations.  For over twenty years, a stalwart group of loyal supporters have contributed to our Excavation and Field School making the exploration of Yeronisos Island possible.

We are especially indebted to those special friends who have taken leadership roles in supporting this work, above all, to Mr. James Ottaway, Jr., and to Bill Murray, Carl Forsythe III, Salvatore S. Ranieri, Charles Scriber III, Gilbert H. Lamphere, Howland D. Murphy, Salvatore and Raquel Jiminez, Nicholas S. Zoullas, William R. Rhodes, Martha Sutherland, George Lucas, Savas Tsivicos and Lloyd Cotsen.


We are indebted to the foundations, companies, and institutions that have sponsored our excavation and research, especially the Leventis Foundation, The Coca Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, The Milbank Foundation, The DeCoizart Charitable Trust, the Mirafi Corporation, the Pan Paphian Association of America, the Explorers Club, and New York University.

The Friends of Yeronisos now comprises over 300 generous donors who contribute financial and “in-kind” gifts, and who join us for our lectures, conferences, fundraisers and parties in New York and in Cyprus.  If you would like to join the Friends and receive our annual newsletters, please do send us your email and other contact information.  We would be delighted to welcome you to the fold of loyal Yeronisites!
