The Bertie-Hertford Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. BHCF was founded in 1999 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Bertie and Hertford counties.
The BHCF, through the NC Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount.
The BHCF board advises the Bertie-Hertford Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in Bertie and Hertford counties, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities.
To supplement their first-hand knowledge of the community, the board annually reviews Community Needs Assessments with county-specific data provided by respected, nonpartisan sources and trusted community partners. Read the Community Needs Assessments for Bertie County and Hertford County.
