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.
