THE HILDEN

CHARITABLE FUND

Our History

The Hilden Charitable Fund was established in 1963 by Joan and Tony Rampton. It is an endowed grant-making foundation registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Number 232591). The aim of the Fund is to address disadvantages, notably by supporting causes which are less likely to raise funds from public subscriptions or statutory sources. The Fund awards approximately £500,000 per year in grants to smaller organisations for work in the UK and Overseas.

The Fund is governed by a Board of Trustees comprising members of the Rampton family and others. The appointment of new trustees is by deed at the discretion of the trustees for the time being. Current Trustees are:

  • A J M Rampton 

  • B Mbubi

  • J Branch

  • J R A Rampton QC 

  • Mrs E K Rodeck 

  • Ms C S L Rampton 

  • Ms E J Rodeck 

  • Ms E Jenkins

  • Ms M E Baxter CBE

  • Ms S Khatun 

  • Prof C H Rodeck 

  • Prof D S Rampton 

  • Prof M B H Rampton 

  • R Rampton 

​The day-to-day running of the Fund is overseen by its Director, Ciaran Rafferty, assisted by Catherine (Kate) Sotto (Office Manager).
