achates philanthropy

Achates Philanthropy is different to other fundraising consultancies.

Established by Caroline McCormick, who's been a fundraiser for more than 20 years, Achates Philanthropy brings together a team of experienced fundraisers to offer an ethical, tailored approach to organisations of all sizes – helping them achieve a long-term, sustainable position and maximise the impact of their work.

Our ethos is based on quality of service and that's how we came by our name. In Virgil's Aeneid, Achates was the close friend and loyal advisor of Trojan leader, Aeneas. We thought this described the exact relationship we offer our clients.
