TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Supporting local causes that matter

Hertfordshire Community Foundation is an independent charity which encourages local philanthropy. We provide advice and giving options for donors which we transform into funding and support for small charities, voluntary groups and individuals in Hertfordshire. By making local giving easy we strengthen our local communities and improve the lives of vulnerable people.

Local giving made easy

Since 1988 HCF has worked with local philanthropists including businesses, families and individuals to provide targeted support to local communities where it is needed most. Whether you would like to give a one-off donation or set up a named fund HCF will ensure that your charitable giving delivers the greatest possible impact. With your help we can continue to improve the lives of Hertfordshire's most disadvantaged residents through effective community philanthropy.
