TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Why give through HCF?

For over 30 years, Hertfordshire Community Foundation has worked with local businesses, families, individuals, charitable trusts, the public sector and national partners to create tailored programmes of grant making based on local need.

We help people and organisations to support local communities where it’s most needed and where it has the greatest impact.

Together, change is possible.

Trusted
We match the aspirations of our donors with the needs of communities and individuals, and we’re transparent about where every £ goes.

Our reliable and efficient grant management service has established us as a trusted partner of our donors and fund holders, enabling us to support thousands of individuals and groups on their behalf.

Proven impact
Together with our donors and national grants we have funded thousands of causes across Hertfordshire.

Last year alone, with the support of our donors we awarded over £1,000,000 in grants to local groups and helped more than 45,000 local people.

Whether your fund goes towards helping those who are most vulnerable, to improving health and wellbeing in the communities and keeping them safe or providing opportunities to those are less advantaged, Hertfordshire Community Foundation connects donors with some of the most deserving causes to help you create change for the better in the local community.
