The Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund - Over 1 million pounds raised to benefit Royal Wedding Charities
Published 22 June 2011
£1,058,367 has been contributed to the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund, which will go to benefit the 26 charities personally chosen by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The funds will be distributed amongst the charities by the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
The couple set up the Charitable Gift Fund so that anyone who wished to give them a wedding gift could instead donate to their chosen charities in celebration of their wedding. The majority of donations made were through the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund Website.
Contributions to the Fund were also made via revenue raised from wedding-related projects including a donation by Decca Records from the sales of the official Royal Wedding Album and a donation made by Mario Testino’s office from the sales of the photograph of the couple printed in the official wedding brochure.
In addition to the Charitable Gift Fund Website, members of the public and wedding guests sent donations directly to the charities themselves and to the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry to add to the Wedding Gift Fund.
