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.

With your help we can continue to improve the lives of Hertfordshire's most disadvantaged residents through effective community philanthropy.

Winter Poverty Appeal

Winter Poverty Appeal

Many Hertfordshire families, senior citizens and other vulnerable people are fearing a grim winter. An anticipated rise in redundancies due to the end of the government furlough scheme, cuts to Universal Credit and soaring fuel prices mean that more people will increasingly be unable to cover the basic costs of living such as food, heating and other essentials.

Our Winter Poverty Appeal aims to help reduce poverty-related misery, cover fuel and food costs and fund activities to reduce loneliness and isolation.
