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 charitable organisations for work in the UK and Overseas (specifically Malawi, Tanzania & Uganda).
