Greater giving starts here

Since 1962, generous New Hampshire individuals, families and businesses have come to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to achieve more with their giving: Greater impact. Greater peace of mind. Greater joy. Whatever your passion — education, kids, the arts, conservation — the Foundation makes it easy to do more.

We can help you do more good

Giving through the Foundation simplifies your giving and amplifies its impact.

Expert philanthropic counsel

Our philanthropy team starts by listening to you. We seek to understand your goals so we can recommend a charitable fund and giving plan that meets your unique needs. We are available to meet with your trusted financial and legal advisors to make sure your philanthropy plan complements other life priorities. We offer this counsel to individuals, families, businesses and nonprofits.

Deep local knowledge

Thousands of nonprofit organizations are serving the people and communities of New Hampshire, and we know them well. Ever wonder how one differs from another? Who might be doing the most effective work? If education is your thing, where are promising Granite Staters looking for scholarships? Those are the questions we ask and answer every day on behalf of Foundation donors. Our expertise becomes yours.

Vision and leadership

Guided by our long-term vision for strong, just and inclusive communities, the Foundation brings people together to take on the state’s greatest challenges — increasing opportunity for young people, combating the addiction crisis, revitalizing rural communities, building a strong workforce.

Trusted stewardship

With decades of proven experience and some 2,000 charitable funds, we offer investment options and customized donor services to meet a wide range of philanthropic interests. We will ensure that your charitable dollars support the things you care about and retain their buying power for generations to come.

Family philanthropy

We can help your family experience the shared joy and purpose of carrying on charitable values. We work with multiple generations of many families, stewarding charitable resources and fulfilling their legacy of giving.

A network for good
