If your application has been successful, you will hear from us within one month of the Trustees’ meeting.

We ask all grant recipients to provide feedback to the Trustees regarding progress of your project.
We expect all successful applicants to have spent the money awarded to them, ideally within 6 months of receiving the grant. In special circumstances, and by prior arrangement with the Trustees we will consider applications for funding that will be spent within a 12-month period but this must be made clear at the time of applying for funding.

Whether you are successful or unsuccessful, you are welcome to reapply to The Prince Philip Trust Fund at any time. However, we would ask successful applicants to wait until they have spent the funds awarded before reapplying.

Do you fund organisations with healthy reserves?

While the Trustees like to see that an organisation is financially well managed, we prefer to see that our support will make a real difference to your project, particularly those who will benefit from it.

I have missed an application deadline. Will the Trustees consider funding my project outwith a regular meeting?

While Trustees can, occasionally, make discretionary awards for smaller grants up to the value of £1,000, the majority of decisions are made at Trustee meetings and it is recommended that applicants submit by the dates given.

Can I get feedback on an unsuccessful application?
