The Hilton in the Community Foundation aims to make a real difference to those most in need. It supports projects within the UK and Ireland that focus on Young People and Education, and Young People and Health.
There is no limit on the amount of money that a charity can request; however, the Foundation is a small charity and generally will not make awards of over £30,000 (per year). Funding can be requested for up to two years for any particular project.
Grants can be awarded for medium to long-term projects or for one-off causes.
Funding is available for registered charities in the United Kingdom and Ireland that are working with disadvantaged children and young people that are considered to be most in need. Charities must work directly with the young people or provide facilities for their direct benefit.
Charities should have:
• Management and administration costs (including fundraising costs) of 30% or less of their annual expenditure.
• Been registered with either the Charity Commission for England and Wales, the OSCR in Scotland or the Irish Charity Register for a period of at least 12 months before the Foundation can consider awarding funding.
• Completed their reporting (e.g. annual return) to these monitoring bodies.
The Foundation will prioritise support to charities that demonstrate community involvement and volunteering opportunities as part of their working practices.
