The Hilden Charitable Fund awards grants to projects both in the UK and in developing countries. The aim of the fund is 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. The Hilden Charitable Fund does not give grants to individuals.
Grant priorities include Asylum Seekers and Refugees, penal affairs and homelessness.
They expect all applicants to complete their application form. Without a completed application form your application will not be considered.
Your case for funds should be concise (no more than 2 sides of A4), but supporting documentation is essential. Please ensure your application includes enclosures of:
- Your most recent independently inspected accounts
- Your most recent annual report
- Projected income and expenditure for the current financial year
While Trustees’ policy is to address needs by considering and funding specific projects’ costs, Trustees 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. Trustees look to the Hilden staff team to advise applicants on funding alternatives if grant applications cannot be considered or awarded.
