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 strongly urge you to read all the information provided in the sections below before applying as these will outline the eligibility criteria, what we fund and how to apply. The criteria will be different in each case. 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.

Want To Reapply?
Please note – you can only apply using the online application process. Requests by email or post; and general appeals, will not be considered.
If you currently have a grant from us you will need to submit a monitoring report form at the end of each grant year funded. If you need more information on this please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In most instances you can have funding from us for up to two consecutive years after which there will need to be a gap before you can apply again. If you have had funding for two consecutive years then you cannot reapply until at least 6 months after you have submitted your monitoring report for the final year of funding.
If you have a one-year grant from us which is still in progress then, subject to our programmes being open, you can apply for a second year’s funding any time during the last 6 months of that grant and providing you meet our criteria at that time. Any grant awarded will be conditional on us receiving a satisfactory monitoring report for the original grant.
If a recent application has been declined then you must wait until at least 6 months from the date you received your decision letter/email from us before applying again.
