Funding criteria

Are you eligible?

The Prince Philip Trust Fund particularly focuses on supporting people and projects in the area covered by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead that are involved with disability, health, the elderly, families, children and young people, those in social need and the arts.

On occasion, we will consider funding projects which take place outside the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, provided that a reasonable number of the beneficiaries come from this area. In such cases, we require applicants to provide information about how many people from the Royal Borough will benefit from the overall project and will tailor the amount awarded accordingly.

There is no minimum or maximum grant level. However, the majority of grants awarded tend to be in the region of £250 to £5,000. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Trustees consider giving more than the upper limit.

We generally do not give support for normal education at school or for first degrees.

The Trust Fund tends not to award multi-year funding, preferring instead to support one-off projects.
