William Price Charitable Trust
Registered Charity 307319
Objects Of The Trust
The original Charity was created in the eighteenth century to provide an education for poor children living in the town of Fareham. However, due to the reorganization of educational facilities in Fareham, after the closure of Price’s College, the charity was reformed in 1989 as a grant–making trust and it has as its object the promotion of education amongst persons under the age of 25 years who are resident in the area of benefit.
