Love Herts - a simple way to give where you live

Love Herts enhances our ability to help vulnerable people in Hertfordshire by making it easy to effectively give to your community.

Donations to the appeal are used to help and support a wide range of deserving causes and community initiatives across Hertfordshire which may otherwise go unsupported.

By using our extensive knowledge of the county and its voluntary sector, including our Hertfordshire Matters research report, we are able to identify and target the areas and issues most in need of support.

We would love to talk to you about how you can help and become involved. Contact us to find out more.

Love Herts Christmas appeal

Give where you Live this Christmas

Hertfordshire Community Foundation is appealing to local residents in the county to donate £5 or more to help some of the most vulnerable children and families in their communities.

Through HCF’s Love Herts Christmas appeal, your generosity could help feed a local child living in poverty, provide a hot meal on Christmas day to one of Hertfordshire’s homeless or go towards helping a family buy a basic appliance such as a washing machine or a child’s bed.

Christmas can be a time of great joy but for some of our residents and neighbours it is going to be an incredibly difficult time of the year. With 10% of the county’s population living in areas of deprivation we are keen to do more this Christmas to help those in need.

Your donation, however large or small, will bring hope to those in greatest need. So, please consider giving generously.

Love Herts Christmas Appeal Launch

This festive season, we are urging local residents in Hertfordshire to spare a thought for those who need our help and support. From families struggling to make ends meet to those who find themselves homeless, together we can brighten up their Christmas.

“I didn’t realise quite how many voluntary groups get together every week, all throughout Hertfordshire, with the pure intent of helping others. I find the selfless giving of time and energy by so many in our county for the benefit of others to be truly inspiring. If my involvement in HCF can help some of these amazing initiatives to keep on doing what they are doing, or even better expand their work, then I will be very happy.”
Simon Tilley – Fund Holder and Trustee
