The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation (PWCF) awarded a grant to Tusk to support their work to tackle poaching and the Illegal Wildlife Trade in Sub-Saharan Africa. PWCF funded two projects which focussed on training rangers in proven interception tracking tactics; training park level intelligence staff for their role; and improving the co-ordination of information sharing between protected areas.

Step Up To Serve receives funding from the Charitable Foundation
The Prince of Wales has always been a long-term supporter of action in the service of others; volunteering with Her Majesty's coastguard when at school in Scotland, and giving his first speech on the subject in The House of Lords in 1975. In November 2013, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales launched an all-party campaign to support and promote youth social action over the next seven years.
