TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Celebrating 30 years of local giving

HCF was formed in 1988 and over the past 30 years we have:
  • Distributed over £11 million in grant aid

  • Supported over 1,000 groups and organisations

  • Awarded 2,275 grants to families and children living in crisis

  • Provided 445 training opportunities to over 5,600 delegates

    To help celebrate this landmark birthday we are hosting a number of special events including a philanthropy lecture, with guest speaker Dame Stephanie Shirley.

An evening with Dame Stephanie Shirley - philanthropist and entrepreneur

22nd May 2018

Join us to hear the inspirational story of Dame Stephanie Shirley, one of Britain's leading philanthropists, who has devoted most of her life to helping good causes. Hosted by University of Hertfordshire and HCF there will be an opportunity at the end of Dame Stephanie's talk to ask questions and to purchase signed copies of her incredible book 'Let it Go.' All proceeds will go to HCF.

Give where you live

There has been much change over the past 30 years but one things remains. Every year HCF has to turn down deserving requests for support due to insufficient funding. It is only thanks to the generosity of our supporters that HCF has achieved what it has but there is a great way to go. If you have ever considered giving to charity please consider supporting HCF. By giving to HCF you know that everyone pound you donate will stay within the county helping tackle need and deprivation.
