The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund
The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF) aims to make a significant impact through its grant making programmes.
Environment: Community environmental projects (including the circular economy), economic sustainability initiatives and conservation of the natural environment. PWCF supported the Friends of Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to collect data on local biodiversity and facilitate wildlife workshops. Larger organisations such as the Atlantic Salmon Trust have also been awarded funds by the Fund.
We would consider small grant applications for projects which benefit diverse groups or communities in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and Internationally. In order to maximize impact, we would also consider awarding multi-year small grants to UK registered non-profit organisations.
Major grant applications are by invitation only.
PWCF considers small grant applications from UK registered non-profit organisations supporting grassroots projects in diverse and deprived communities. The small grants programme awards single or multi-year grants to a maximum value of £5,000 and £15,000 respectively. The average single award is £1,500.
- We will consider applications from UK registered non-profit organisations with an income of up to £1 million. Please note that to maximise impact and to meet our charitable objectives, PWCF may from time to time invite organisations with an income of more than £1 million to apply for funding during a closed grant round.
- Applications will be considered from organisations that have completed at least two years of activity and are able to submit accounts or income and expenditure statements.
- Where applicable, PWCF will offer a single or multi-year small grant award.
- We are keen to fund projects/activities and organisations that are committed to embedding equality, diversity and inclusion principles or aim to support diverse communities.
