The Hilden Charitable Fund: Inviting Applications for projects in developing countries working on community development, education, and health.

Donor Name: The Hilden Charitable Fund
Fund name: The Hilden Charitable Fund

Funding brief: 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.

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 Organizations/charities and hope that UK NGOs/charities will encourage their local partners to apply directly to Hilden for grant aid.

Deadline: Hilden accepts applications at anytime but the closing date for the Spring meeting is: Thursday March 16th 2017
