TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Setting up your own charity or trust can be overwhelming – with many administrative and legal requirements.

A named fund with Hertfordshire Community Foundation is a simple and effective alternative.

  • We offer a tailored service and work closely with you to ensure that your giving objectives and parameters are met and are matched with local needs.

  • We deal with all requests for support and manage all grant awards made.

  • We ensure that any projects you support have been approved by our independent grants panel.



A named fund with Hertfordshire Community Foundation is a tax-efficient way to give with minimal administration whilst helping you to achieve maximum impact through your giving.

NAMED FUND BROCHURE

“I didn’t realise quite how many voluntary groups get together every week, all throughout Hertfordshire, with the pure intent of helping others. I find the selfless giving of time and energy by so many in our county for the benefit of others to be truly inspiring. If my involvement in HCF can help some of these amazing initiatives to keep on doing what they are doing, or even better expand their work, then I will be very happy.”
Simon Tilley – Fund Holder and Trustee
