eBay Charity Prince's Trust

Support a Young Person Today

Invest in the talent of tomorrow and help us raise vital funds for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Enabling opportunity

At eBay, our mission is to enable opportunity for all. Supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses in communities all over the world is central to our mission. Every day eBay helps independent sellers, entrepreneurs and small businesses learn new skills, gain confidence and access a market where they can turn their dreams into business success.

That’s why we’ve chosen to partner with The Prince’s Trust. They, like us, believe that every young person should have the chance to fulfil their potential. Through their Enterprise Programme, The Prince’s Trust works with 18-30-year-olds to turn big ideas into a business reality by providing training, mentoring, funding and a variety of other resources to budding entrepreneurs.

So far, the Prince’s Trust has helped over 86,000 young people to start their own business through its transformative Enterprise Programme. Help us raise vital funds to support their work so more young people can work towards a brighter future.

Give Day: You Shop, We Donate!

Through eBay for Charity sellers, shoppers and supporters you can give to charity every day but on Give Day we throw open the doors for a 24 hour Prince’s Trust eBay take over, with 5p of every purchase made on the site donated to the charity’s Enterprise Programme. Last year over £100,000 was raised, which equates to 2,000 hours of expert mentoring for entrepreneurs that helps struggling enterprises become successful businesses.

Exclusive Collaboration with Trunki

eBay has collaborated with Trunki, an alumni of the Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme and beloved kids luggage maker, to develop a limited edition Charlie the dragon suitcase. Charlie is exclusively available on eBay with 100% of proceeds (excluding vat) being donated by eBay to the Prince’s Trust work supporting young entrepreneurs like Trunki CEO, Rob Law.
