About us

What is Million Makers?

Million Makers is a free, CPD-accredited, entrepreneurial fundraising challenge, which sees teams of employees from organisations across the UK, develop their business skills whilst raising as much money as possible for The Prince's Trust.  
The 2022 Million Makers teams collectively raised £2.38 million, enabling The Prince’s Trust to support almost 2,000 disadvantaged young people into education, employment or enterprise. By taking part in the 2024 challenge, your employees can transform the lives of young people across the UK.

Million Makers success stories


Team Dream Builders wanted to create an opportunity for female undergraduates to explore careers across the tech industry.

By securing sponsorship from across their tech partnerships, the team created “IT Meets High Tea”, a careers fair with skills workshops, panel events, networking and afternoon tea.

New Look

Team New Look Nine embarked on a journey to create an inspiring clothing line, bringing their customers on the partnership journey. The 'All We Need Is Love' range was born, selling t-shirts and sweatshirts brandishing this slogan from July through to December, raising an incredible £222k of vital funds to support young people.

For some of the team, this was the first time they had designed a clothing line for the brand - providing great professional development for those involved.

Team Changemakers raised £50k+ by delivering a once in a lifetime Gala experience to their clients and partners, offering a Michelin starred tasting menu under the lunar landscape, suspended against the unique Baroque backdrop of the Painted Hall.

Guests paid an individual ticket price for an unforgettable evening of exquisite food, entertainment and auction prizes, in a spectacular setting. The team utilised this opportunity to build their partner relationships, seating senior leaders beside important clients, and taking the opportunity to thank them for their business.
