The New York-based "Friends of Yeronisos" was founded in 1992; this dedicated group of more than 300 enthusiasts has collected funds to sustain our work over the past four seasons. Private donations, which are fully tax-deductible, underwrite a very substantial portion of the project's budget. We welcome your participation in this effort.

The "Friends of Yeronisos" gather once a year at the Explorers Club in New York City for the Annual Dig Party, a fundraising event complete with an illustrated presentation of the results of the summer dig season, live auction, Cypriot food, wine and music. Children of Yeronisos friends are invited each spring for a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Greek and Roman Galleries, guided by Professor Connelly. Friends receive the Yeronisos Newsletter, invitations to archaeological lectures and other events, and are encouraged to visit Yeronisos during the excavation season.

We are planning to dedicate our our new dig house this June with a symposium and celebration; Friends who wish to join us for the event should contact us now to make travel plans.

Please join the Friends of Yeronisos with your fully tax-deductible contribution made payable to NYU Yeronisos Island Expedition and directed to:

Friends of Yeronisos, Dept. of Fine Arts, New York University, 303 Main Building, Washington Square, New York, New York 10003. Thank you for your support!!
