The team at Highgrove work with skilled craftspeople to create unique products for the home and garden. All profits from the sale of Highgrove products are paid to The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation.
The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation, a grant making Trust, was established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1979.
The Prince’s Charities are a group of independent not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President. He has carried out hundreds of engagements in support of these charitable enterprises, and together they now turn over more than £110 million per annum. The group is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom.
The charitable organisations are active across a broad range of areas including the Built Environment, Responsible Business and Enterprise and Young People and Education. Additionally a number of social enterprises make a significant contribution by donating all of their profits to The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation. The charities reflect The Prince of Wales’s values of harmony and sustainability and seek to address areas of previously unmet need.
