Latest News

The Overseas Programme is currently open for applications. Please make sure to read all the guidance and information on how we will prioritise those seeking funding. For more information on this programme and on when the UK funding stream will open see below.


The Hilden Charitable Fund is an endowed grant-making foundation and a registered charity. We fund smaller UK-based organisations delivering projects within the UK to support social justice and to tackle disadvantage in specific areas of focus - providing unrestricted, core or project funding. We also fund projects overseas – in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. We are a small team with limited capacity to respond to general enquiries but if you have a particular question which is not covered in the various links then please do get in touch.
