Make a major donation

Our major donors have a major impact upon our work. 

Without the support of philanthropic individuals, much of the work we undertake with disadvantaged young people would just not be possible. Their support has significant impact, directly transforming the lives of the most vulnerable young people in the UK.

Over the past couple of years The Prince’s Trust has experienced an unprecedented increase in the number of calls to its helpline; we could reach so many more marginalised and disillusioned young people with the support of more passionate philanthropists.

  • Regular reports on the impact of your donations
  • Bespoke opportunities to visit Prince's Trust programmes
  • Initiations to The Trust's unique networking groups, in sectors such as Insurance, Construction, Technology, and Transport, as well as a group specifically for leading, influential women
  • Dedicated support and guidance from The Trust's Major Donor Development Team to help shape your relationship with The Trust

HRH The Prince of Wales with Peter Cruddas, a Platinum PatronPatrons

Prince's Trust Patrons are donors whose generosity marks them as our leading supporters. By pledging to support The Prince’s Trust over a number of years, Patrons enable change on a big scale.

Patrons of The Prince’s Trust include some of the world’s leading companies, charitable foundations and philanthropic individuals. To join this group is to become the catalyst for change in the lives of the most disadvantaged of young people.

Our Patrons are our most honoured supporters and the extraordinary contribution they make is of course recognized by our President, HRH The Prince of Wales, who takes a keen interest in those who give so generously to his Trust.

There are various tiers of Patronage and you can view our current role of Patrons here.
