The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation was founded in 1979. The Foundation uses the income it earns from its commercial ventures to support charitable causes across the UK.
Inspired by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales's values of harmony and sustainability, the Charitable Foundation aims to transform lives and build sustainable communities.
Over the last three years the Charitable Foundation has supported the Place Strategy, which brought together The Prince’s Charities to work collaboratively in communities such as Burnley, Burslem, Redcar and Tottenham.
Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visited Chinatown in London to open the new China Exchange centre and help celebrate Chinese New Year.
Applying for grants
The Charitable Foundation aims to make a significant impact through its two grant making programmes. The Trustees and The Prince of Wales are keen that awards help to make a significant difference to people and their communities. Therefore the Charitable Foundation is particularly interested to receive small grant applications from grassroot community-based projects in the UK.
The major grants programme awards grants in excess of £5,000. The Charitable Foundation is unfortunately unable to accept unsolicited requests for the major grants programme.
The small grants programme awards grants to a maximum value of £5,000. The average award is £1,500. To establish eligibility, please follow the 'Apply for a grant' link to the application form.
