The Achates Philanthropy Prize is the only annual award that celebrates first-time cultural giving in the UK.

Each year two awards are presented, one for first-time individual philanthropy, and one for first time corporate partnerships.

The winning arts organisations in each category receive a £5,000 grant, and their nominated individual or company becomes the custodian of one of the two prize sculptures for the year.
