Sponsors and Donors


The Connecticut Chapter of Achilles International operates under the umbrella of Achilles International, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Achilles’ Federal Tax ID is 13-3318293. The Connecticut Chapter is responsible for raising our own funds in support of our mission: we write grants, and seek sponsors along with corporate and individual donors. We welcome in-kind partnerships with community organizations whose missions are aligned with Achilles’.

Corporations and their charitable foundations can meet the strategic goals of their social responsibility programs and receive valuable brand exposure through support of the Connecticut Chapter of Achilles International (Achilles Connecticut). In sponsoring Achilles Connecticut, your organization’s brand will be associated with our inspiring mission and the perception of your brand’s social values and actions will be enhanced. In addition, sponsorship affords an opportunity for brand exposure through brand signage, brand acknowledgment on print and web materials, and PR mentions.

Membership in Achilles is free, and through our generous donors and sponsors, we raise the necessary funds for our members to participate in events each year across the Northeast (including Boston, Eversource Hartford, and TCS New York City Marathons).   Additionally, the Chapter purchases and maintains its own fleet of handcycles to loan to those athletes who do not have access to racing equipment, thus lowering the barrier to participation.


Online donations can be securely made through Blackbaud Peer-to-Peer Fundraising™️ powered by JustGiving.
