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.
