Funding themes

Our grant making programmes aim to support community projects, complement the work of The Prince of Wales’s core charities and promote His Royal Highness’s charitable interests.

Our current funding themes and some examples of the projects we fund are:

Heritage & Conservation

Heritage conservation and restoration projects at places of worship. We are interested in funding non-capital projects that improve the fabric of buildings for the benefit of local communities.


We welcome applications from organisations that seek to deliver education and training projects outside of The Prince’s Trust scope and age-range including support for people with special educational needs.

Health & Wellbeing

Community projects and initiatives which support health and wellbeing of people with disabilities or life limiting illnesses in disadvantaged communities. We would consider applications for respite care, young carers and complementary therapies.

Social Inclusion

Community and art projects that aim to relieve poverty, loneliness and other social issues or support the welfare of the elderly, veterans and interfaith cohesion.


Community environmental projects (including the circular economy), economic sustainability initiatives and conservation of the natural environment.


Most of the projects we fund in support of the fabric of the countryside is administered by The Prince’s Countryside Fund (PCF), a subsidiary of PWCF. PCF provides grants to support and sustain rural communities and to improve the prospects of viability for farm and rural businesses.
