Can my company enter more than one team?

add remove

Yes. It works best for multiple companies that have a large employee base and multiple sites. We advise against having multiple teams from the same location, or if it’s your first year taking part.

What if our team is spread out across different locations? 

add remove

That’s not a problem. With the world becoming more agile and working from home being the new norm, we are expecting our teams to represent many regions. Million Makers can be a great way to bring colleagues together through encouraging cross-team collaboration and multi-site teamwork. 

To keep connected and to make this an opportunity accessible to all staff, we recommend using conferencing platforms, like Microsoft Teams or Zoom, and providing the opportunity for the team to meet in person at key points in the challenge.

How much does it cost to take part in Million Makers?

Million Makers is free to join. The Prince’s Trust will provide your team with the seed funding of up to £1,500, and all the resources needed throughout the challenge. To safeguard our own funds, by agreeing to our terms and conditions when registering, you are agreeing to underwrite this capital investment.

Is Million Makers just about fundraising? 

add remove

No! Throughout your Million Makers journey, you will also gain access to learning and development opportunities through our skill sessions. These sessions focus on key skills you need for fundraising, but also skills that will benefit your career. Led by a panel of experts, you will gain insight into leadership, resilience, marketing, events management and more. 

You will also gain access to volunteering opportunities during the challenge, giving you the chance to understand the cause you are supporting and work directly with young people!  

Is Million Makers a competition?

First and foremost, Million Makers is a fundraising challenge to raise much needed funds to support young people. However, we love a bit of friendly competition! Check out our leader board to see how your team is doing. We will celebrate the teams who raise the most money and injecting some sector-based competition as well.

It doesn’t have to be the end! In 2023, we launched our exclusive Million Makers Alumni Network, to give previous participants the chance to continue their involvement with Million Makers and The Prince’s Trust. 


By joining the network, members will gain access to further development opportunities, networking opportunities, and receive updates from The Prince’s Trust on the impact of their support. From joining us at some of our Prince’s Trust events to putting all those skills you have learnt throughout the duration of the competition to good use by mentoring future Million Makers teams – there are so many ways to continue your involvement!  

At the end of your time in the Million Makers competition, you will receive comms from the Million Makers team about how to become a member. For more information and to register for the alumni network, see the alumni hub.
