The Hilden Charitable Fund is seeking applications to award grants to projects both in the UK and in developing countries with an aim to address disadvantages, notably by supporting causes which are less likely to raise funds from public subscriptions.
The Hilden Charitable Fund was established in 1963 by Joan and Tony Rampton. It is a grant making foundation registered with the UK Charity Commission.
Both the UK and overseas fund policy is directed largely at supporting work at community level. Grants are rarely given to well funded national charities. Grants are not given to individuals.
- In the UK: Hilden’s grant making priorities are: Homelessness, Penal Affairs, Asylum Seekers and Refugees, and Community Based Initiatives for Disadvantaged Young People Aged 16 to 25.
- Hilden’s grant making priorities overseas are for projects in developing countries working on community development, education and health. Trustees will particularly welcome projects that address the needs and potential of girls and women. Trustees will be pleased to hear from UK Non Governmental Organisations/charities and hope that UK NGOs/charities will encourage their local partners to apply directly to Hilden for grant aid.
- Average grants are £5,000.
- Hilden will consider funding for more than one year.
