Making a difference in Hertfordshire

Making a difference in Hertfordshire

Public sector cuts, an ageing population and an increase in child poverty are just some of the factors contributing to the growing demand placed on local charitable services. The need for local giving to support Hertfordshire’s charities and community groups has never been greater.

On behalf of our donors HCF has invested over £11 million into small charities and community projects across Hertfordshire since 1988.

With your help we can continue to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged in our county through effective community philanthropy.
