The Prince’s Countryside Fund gives grants to projects that support the people who care for the countryside.


Our Projects

The Prince's Countryside Fund supports projects that fits one or more of the Fund's three goals:

  • To improve the sustainability of British farming and rural communities, targeting the areas of greatest need;
  • To reconnect consumers with countryside issues; and
  • To support farming and rural crisis charities through a dedicated emergency funding stream.

The Fund has committed to support three initial projects and reserve a proportion of funding for emergencies. The Fund will be making further grants later in the year.
