Major gifts

The support of our philanthropists helps thousands of disadvantaged young people to turn their lives around each year.  


Young people need your support in this unprecedented and challenging time. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused instability to the economy, society and the lives of young people. It is vital that this generation do not lose hope. We cannot risk their futures by not acting now. The Young People Relief Fund has been launched to ensure we can adapt to give young people the support they need during this challenging time, and beyond. To find out more please contact Kat Farram, Director of Philanthropy.

I support The Prince’s Trust because I trust the leadership to spend my investment wisely and make a difference to young people. I’m passionate about innovation and, together, we are equipping the next generation with the digital skills they need for the future. 
Mel Morris, CBE

Individual philanthropists and grant-making trusts and foundations play a pivotal role in the work of The Prince's Trust to transform young people's lives for the better. 

Young people today are facing extraordinary pressures. With your help, we can continue to work with hundreds of the UK's most vulnerable young people every day. To become a supporter of The Prince’s Trust, please contact us and we would be delighted to discuss how you can make a difference to young people’s lives.

Our time, success and fortune are borrowed. You can never give or appreciate enough, but every effort helps. At The Parasol Foundation Trust we are committed to creating a better future for the next generation. We are proud to be working with The Prince's Trust to help young people develop their skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), which will help them to re-engage with education or move into training or work.                                                                                                                                                                                             Ruth Parasol, The Parasol Foundation Trust

Meaningful relationships

To become a supporter of The Prince's Trust is to become a catalyst for change in the lives of the young people who need it most. The long-term support of our Patrons means The Trust can make a sustainable difference to the futures of many young people and we are passionate about demonstrating the value of your support and bringing you closer to our work. 

We value the bespoke nature of our relationships with our most significant supporters and work collaboratively to achieve the greatest impact possible for our young people. We provide detailed reporting on the impact of their giving every year, as well as opportunities to see our work in action and understand the significant difference that such giving makes to the lives of young people across the UK.

The Prince's Trust Endowment Fund

If we are to serve young people in the very long term, we need to create a more diversified funding base that will allow us to adapt to society's changing needs. Our endowment fund will create a bedrock of financial stability for The Prince's Trust.

The Prince's Trust Endowment fund will support our whole organisation, offering greater financial resilience that would enable us not only to grow, but to innovate in response to the changing needs of young people for generations to come. 

The Prince's Trust helps young people acquire the confidence and experience they need to live a rewarding life. In many ways it serves as a university of life for those for whom higher education is inaccessible. 

Just like our leading universities, The Prince's Trust now needs an endowment to ensure it has the resilience to serve young people in perpetuity. This could not be more important at a time when so many are existing in relative poverty and the most marginalised are ill-equipped to cope in a rapidly changing world.                            John Booth, Chairman of The Prince's Trust

Now more than ever, we need the support of friends to build a legacy of hope and opportunity for future generations. To find out more about our Endowment Fund, please contact our Senior Head of Philanthropy, Karis Eaglestone -
