Become a benefactor

We know there are many requests for support, but we offer change that can benefit everybody, everywhere. The work that we do relies on the generosity of our benefactors.

We can’t educate, empower or engage people without your help. In return, we offer exclusive tours, access to our research and invitations to both social and professional occasions.
 
Whether you have £5 a month or £500 to give, it will help make a real difference from Upton to Newquay, China to Sierra Leone.
 
"The Country Houses Foundation recognises the need to invest in the future to preserve the past. Since becoming supporters of The Prince's Foundation's Building Skill Programme in 2009, we have provided three promising young craftspeople with the best possible start to a successful career. Through our support wer are helping to ensure future generations are able to enjoy the rich tapestry of architectural heritage that we have today."

"This has to be the most rewarding, intense and thought-provoking three weeks of my life. I met new people, learnt new skills and had my perception of the building industry changed."
