The final funding round for 2022 is open for new applications from local charities and projects in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.
Applications for the second and final round of funding for 2022 from The Prince Philip Trust Fund for Windsor and Maidenhead are now open.
Local charities, not-for-profit projects and good causes can apply for grant funds from the local, royal charity but must show in their application how the residents of the Royal Borough will benefit. The Trust Fund typically supports a wide range of projects that support the elderly, families, young people, the arts and those in need of health and social support. In 2021, over £90,000 was given out to projects and charities that support the residents and communities of Windsor and Maidenhead.
Applications for grant funds will close on 1st October in time for the Board of Trustees to consider in their meeting in November which will be chaired by HRH Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex. Any applications need to be received before this date to be considered. To check eligibility and to make an application click here.
The Prince Philip Trust Fund, now in its 45th year, typically grants funding awards between the value of £500 to £5,000 and to date has divested over £2m in grants which have been given out across the Royal Borough. It is hoped that, in the near future, more funds will be made available to the local communities when the trustees of another local charity, The Royal Albert Institute Fund (reg charity no 252864) resolved in April to transfer their remaining funds to the Prince Philip Trust Fund, subject to final Charity Commission approvals.
