The Patron’s Network

Our patrons and funders

The extraordinary contribution made by our patrons is recognised by everyone from our charity partners to our executive team, trustees and up to our founder HRH The Prince of Wales. Without our patrons' generous support, much of our work simply would not be possible.


In Kind Direct would like to thank the individuals, trusts, foundations and companies whose generosity and foresight enable our organisation to deliver its strategic objectives and help millions of people in need.

Become a patron

As a patron, your support may be acknowledged in the following ways:

Bespoke reports demonstrating the impact that your investments are making

As much or as little involvement with the charity as you would like, including regular meetings with the leadership of the charity

Invitations to exclusive events

Opportunities to meet and network with fellow patrons

Recognition in our Annual Report, website and other materials, if desired

Invest in the future

The In Kind Direct Patrons’ Network is a select group of like-minded people who understand and recognise the unique impact that In Kind Direct’s work has for communities and the environment. Becoming a patron is an opportunity to invest in what we are working to achieve by 2020, building on the vision of our Founder, HRH The Prince of Wales.

Our patrons’ generosity is absolutely core to what we do. Without their support, much of our work simply would not be possible. 

Levels of patronage

Through our Patrons’ Network we aim to raise £3.5 million between 2015 and 2020 to support delivery of our strategic objectives. Patronage is available at three levels: Patron, Diamond Patron and Investor's Circle.

Recognising your support

The extraordinary contribution made by our patrons is recognised by HRH The Prince of Wales, who takes a keen interest in those who give so generously to his charity.

Corporate Patronage

Patronage of In Kind Direct is also available to companies, at the above levels. Companies can promote their status as patrons using dedicated materials available on request.
