TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Giving to your community

At Hertfordshire Community Foundation, we provide a personal service to help people invest in their local area. Individuals, families and companies work with us to give their money, time or skills to help meet the specific needs of Hertfordshire residents.

We use our financial expertise to grow and build donors’ charitable gifts to create a permanent, flexible source of funding for those who need it most. We have in-depth local knowledge through our own Herts Matters research, so can match donors’ passions and interests to grassroots projects that are helping tackle key issues and enhancing the lives of those in some of our most disadvantaged communities.

Investing via HCF can help you give back to your local area in several ways:

Named Funds: For larger, long-term investments in the community, many individuals and corporates choose to set up a named fund as an alternative to establishing their own private trust.

Regular donations: Those who wish to make regular or occasional smaller donations can do so by visiting our Love Herts page.

Volunteering: You can also give your time, skills and expertise to your local community. We are always on the look-out for like-minded people with experience and passion to share.
