Through partnering organisations, such as Greenwich Hospitalthe Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity provides funding to front-line naval, military and civilian charities and organisations that help people throughout their lives, whatever problem or issue they face.

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity has developed a Framework of Funding Principles which sets out the funding ambitions of the charity. This document is underpinned by our funding themes and the outcomes we wish to achieve for beneficiaries through our benevolence support. Both of these documents should be considered before applying for funding.
