Grants of up to £5000 for groups helping to tackle identified need in Hertfordshire

Application Deadline: 21st April 2020 outcome known by the end of June

The HCF Large grants invite applications of up to £5000 from projects that are addressing identified need within Hertfordshire. Successful applications from this programme are funded by a range of the individual, family and corporate funds managed by HCF.

The grants panel meets to consider applications throughout the year, approximately every two months. There will be a deadline for each panel meeting, with the current deadline stated on the website.

HCF are looking for projects that:
  • Are meeting an identified need in the county - we encourage groups to reference evidence where available. We encourage applicants to reference our own Hertfordshire Matters reports or other relevant research or data where appropriate.
  • Can demonstrate how the money requested will help them to make a positive difference (i.e. have clear objectives and outcomes).
  • Are well thought through and costed appropriately.
  • Are well connected to the communities they serve.
  • Will be able to spend the funding requested within 12 months of the grant being awarded.

    For more information, please download the Fund Criteria and Guidance below.
