In the UK: Hilden’s grant making priorities are:

  • Homelessness
  • Penal Affairs
  • Asylum Seekers and Refugees
  • and Community Based Initiatives for Disadvantaged Young People Aged 16 to 25.

Hilden’s grant making priorities overseas are for projects in developing countries working on community development, education and health. Trustees will particularly welcome projects that address the needs and potential of girls and women.

Funds are directed largely at supporting work at a community level. Grants are rarely given to well funded national charities. Trustees are most sympathetic to funding general running, or core costs.
