Hildren Charitable Fund now accepting grant applications for UK and overseas projects (application deadline 20 March 2020).

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.

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.

The average grant is £5,000 and Hilden will consider funding for more than 12 months.

The next application deadline is Wednesday March 18th 2020.

Priority Areas

o 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.

o Overseas: 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.

Application is by application form, available on the Trust’s website, where further information can also be found.
