The Hilden Charitable Fund has announced that the next deadline for submitting applications is the 20th March 2015.
Within the UK, the Hilden Charitable Fund makes grants to projects that address disadvantages, notably by supporting causes which are less popular. In particular, the Fund wants to support projects that address:
- Supports asylum seekers and refugees
- Supports community based initiatives for disadvantaged young people 16 – 25
- Penal affairs.
The average grant awarded is £5,000 and preference is given to supporting small community organisations with an income of less than £500,000 per year. The Trust will consider funding project as well as core running costs of organisations.
The Hilden Charitable Fund also runs a Summer Playscheme Grants Programme. The scheme aims to help community groups run Summer Playschemes for the benefit of children from refugee and ethnic minority families. Funding of between £500 and £1,500 is available for Summer Playschemes for children aged 5 – 18 years lasting for 2 – 6 weeks with strong volunteer support. The funding is available to voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000. Some priority will be given to projects which show they are inclusive of children from refugee families, and show BME involvement.
The closing date for applications is the 17th May 2015.
