Hilden Charitable Fund provides grants to small charities throughout the UK and in developing countries. They like to support causes which are unlikely to raise funds from public sources, (unpopular causes) and their funding is directed largely at supporting work at a community level.
VERY IMPORTANT: THE OVERSEAS PRIORITY HAS CHANGED.
Applicants please note they will only consider applications from:
UK CHARITIES WORKING OVERSEAS WHICH HAVE:
– a history of working overseas for at least 5 years
– have an income of over £100,000 in their last two financial years, but not more than £500,000
– if they are working with partners overseas (ie funding their partners) they should show that their partners have been in existence for at least 3 years and have an income of over £10,000
To be eligible for UK funding, charities that are registered and operating in the UK must:
Have an income of less than £500,000 in the last financial year.
Be formally constituted, have a bank account and a committee.
Be able to demonstrate UK charitable purposes.
