And so much more!


Donors make secure, online donations to your fundraising page, or by check on your behalf.  Make checks payable to Achilles Connecticut.  Our mailing address for check donations is: 
Achilles Connecticut P.O. Box 2302 Branford, CT 06405

Share, share, share!! Your fundraising platform allows you to share on social media with a single click – but sharing via emails sent to friends,  family, and colleagues often produce the best results.

Check with your employer about matching gifts…each year we receive a few thousand dollars through matching corporate gifts alone! For volunteers, some companies will also reward you as the employee for giving back to the community as a volunteer for a charity, by making a donation in your honor! 

Ask family, friends, and neighbors who own their own businesses. Ask in your local community at places you frequent! 

Thank you for your support! For questions or technical support for EHM please email
