About Us

What we do

The aim of The Prince Philip Trust Fund is to make a real difference to the quality of life of people from communities across the extensive area covered by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

Since being established as a grant-giving trust in 1977, we have supported over 1600 causes and distributed almost £2 million in grants.

The Prince Philip Trust Fund only considers applications submitted in accordance with our guidelines. Trustees prioritise applications requesting support for one-off project funding, and which show some sustainability or fundraising success. The Trustees often provide matched funding for projects.

A brief history

The Prince Philip Trust Fund was an initiative by the first Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, the late Sir Christopher Aston.

He founded the grant-giving trust in 1977 to thank His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh for his service to the community during the first 25 years of the Queen’s reign.

Since then, we have supported over 1600 causes and distributed almost £2 million in grants.

What we fund

We are keen to support projects and people from the communities across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead that cover the following issues:

The development of children and young people

Those in social need

Sport and disability

Physical and mental health

The elderly

The arts

All applicants must show how their project will make a difference to those involved.
