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.
Fund policies both in the UK and overseas are directed largely at supporting work at community level.
After a major review of Fund activities in 1992, the following grant making priorities were established: homelessness, minorities, penal affairs and overseas countries. These priorities are reviewed on a three year cycle.
While the policy of trustees 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.
