Mission and focus

The Bertie-Hertford Women’s Fund is a program designed to maximize women’s leadership in philanthropy by engaging and educating its membership, increasing charitable contributions and strengthening communities through the impact of collective giving.

We currently focus on initiatives that address the needs of and for women and children in areas of health, education, human services in Bertie and Hertford Counties.
