Funding Local Causes

Other ways to help

Giving doesn't always have to be a financial contribution.

What better way to show you truly care about the needs of the people of Hertfordshire than by giving your time or helping to fundraise?
Here are some of the others ways you can help support the work we do in Hertfordshire.

Run the London Marathon

If you think you are up to the challenge and would like to raise funds for the community of Hertfordshire, we would love to hear from you.

Each year, HCF is lucky to have a number of Charity Golden Bond places for one of the most famous marathons in the world – the iconic London Marathon.




Become a volunteer

Your unique skills and expertise could be just what we need to help more people

The Foundation recognises the benefits that volunteers can bring to the organisation. We have a small team of volunteers who provide support to our grant making and general administration activities.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering opportunities, please contact Ingrid Dos Santos, Office Manager.
