Summer playscheme 2021

Hilden Charitable Fund is partnering with Social Farms & Gardens in 2021 to provide small grants for SF&G members to provide children’s summer activities. SF&G is particularly interested in funding activities that will connect children from disadvantaged backgrounds with nature. The fund is only available to members of Social Farms & Gardens.

Applications will be open from Friday 16th April until midday on Monday 24th May 2021. Find out more on the SF&G website.

How we hope Hilden can help your project

We write as the COVID-19 is still affecting all of us with the insecurity that it brings. The Hilden Charitable Fund intends to work as best as it can, to award grants to projects in need within our criteria. Hilden is a small trust, so we cannot respond to immediate needs. We have a limited budget. 

Grant Aid

We want to ensure our small grants can help projects with their everyday costs, and support their projects post corona.
