The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation

The largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom, The Prince’s Charities is a group of not-for-profit organizations of which The Prince of Wales is President or Founder. The charities reflect The Prince of Wales's long-term and innovative perspective, and seek to address areas of previously unmet need. In addition, The Prince’s Charities reflect The Prince of Wales’s long-standing concerns relating to global sustainability.

At The Prince’s Trust, they believe every young person should have the chance to succeed. Their mission is to help disadvantaged young people in the UK to change their lives and get into work, education or training. The Trust supports young people aged 13 to 30 who are unemployed and those struggling at school.

The Prince's Foundation focuses on the built environment, heritage, community education projects and promoting culture across the UK. The Foundation now comprises four of The Prince of Wales's existing charities: The Prince's Regeneration Trust, The Prince's Foundation for Building Community, The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts and The Great Steward of Scotland Dumfries House Trust. This new structure allows the Foundation to achieve His Royal Highness's goal of creating viable and renewable communities.

The Dumfries House Trust works to deliver His Royal Highness’s vision for heritage led regeneration, through education, employability and community involvement, and is a hub for the work of The Prince’s other major charities.

The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community transforms people’s lives by creating beautiful, harmonious and enduring communities. It does this by educating people, enabling projects and championing its principles. 

The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts specializes in teaching, researching, and promoting the practice and theory of the arts and crafts of the world’s great traditions; it offers postgraduate courses, short courses, research, lectures, study visits, and international outreach projects.

The Royal Drawing School aims to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and practice. It is one of only a few institutions in the world offering in-depth, quality tuition for those who wish to develop their observational drawing skills.
