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.

a) are most sympathetic to funding general running, or core costs. In awarding these types of ‘unrestricted’ grants, Trustees believe that great value can be added, as most charities find fund raising for core costs most difficult;
b) look to the Hilden staff team to advise applicants on funding alternatives if grant applications cannot be considered or awarded.

Priority Areas
1. 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;
2. Overseas: Hilden’s grant making priorities overseas are for projects in developing countries working on community development, education, and health.

Utilize This Offer

Both the UK and overseas fund policy is directed largely at supporting work at community level.

Trustees will particularly welcome projects that address the needs and potential of girls and women.

Average grants are £5,000.
