The Hilton Foundation is a strategic grantmaking organization. We initiate and develop long-term projects and partnerships to help us deliver maximum impact. We do not accept unsolicited proposals. 

We cultivate long-term projects and partner with organizations whose efforts are aligned with our program strategies. This proactive approach helps us maximize effectiveness and impact.

Please see our frequently asked questions for more information on our strategic grantmaking approach.  

Your organization may qualify to be nominated for the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize. The $2.5 million Prize is awarded each year to a charitable organization doing extraordinary work to alleviate human suffering.

If you are a local organization working within our neighboring community of the Conejo Valley, you may qualify for a grant within our Good Neighbor Program. If your organization directly serves the economically disadvantaged, and the project for which you seek funding directly involves and employs full-time avowed member of an officially recognized Catholic congregation of women, you may be eligible for funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Fund for Sisters. Grants from the Fund for Sisters usually do not exceed $15,000.
