Grant Giving Programme

Grant Giving Programme

The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. We have grants of up to £50,000 available for innovative projects that will provide a lasting legacy to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.

We recognise that rural communities face a range of challenges. One way in which we help grassroots organisations overcome these is through our grant programme.

We seek applications to support activity that results in a long-term positive impact on rural communities by helping the people that live and work in the countryside. Our grant programme currently aims to tackle the following key rural issues:

  1. To improve the prospects of viability for family farm businesses
  2. To sustain rural communities and drive economic vibrancy
  3. To support aid delivery in emergency and building resilience

Each theme is described in more detail in our Grant Eligibility and Guidance Document. You can read more about the ways in which we have helped people here.

Please note, we do not fund individuals or private farm businesses.

The Fund will be open for grant applications from April 30th to June 14th 2018.

Additional funding is available outside of this period for community projects aimed at reducing isolation in deprived rural areas through the Rural Four project funded by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Please contact The Prince’s Countryside Fund Manager, Helen Aldis, for more information.
