Amplify the power of your giving

For more than a half-century, New Hampshire's most generous people have trusted the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to help them achieve their philanthropic goals. We connect donors with great organizations, ideas and people and lead and collaborate on issues and initiatives critical to the Granite State. We can help you build a legacy to address what matters to you most.

WHY WORK WITH THE FOUNDATION

Your philanthropic partner

Our philanthropy team will work with you and your trusted advisors – accountants, wealth managers, financial advisors and attorneys – to create a customized giving plan that adapts to your changing needs and interests. We will help you maximize both philanthropic impact and tax benefits.

Local knowledge, global reach

New Hampshire is our home town. We are experts on what matters and what works in every corner of the state. We will connect you with great ideas, organizations and people – making it easy and effective for you to support the causes you care about most. And we facilitate effective grantmaking across the U.S. and beyond.

Impact, multiplied

We have always understood – since a few generous citizens started this Foundation in 1962 – that we have more charitable reach together than any of us do alone. We know New Hampshire, and we bring donors together to collaborate on things they care about. We provide leadership and create coalitions that have a deep effect on core institutions and public policy. And, since 2009, charitable giving through the Foundation has directly secured an additional $66 million from other sources to fund good works in New Hampshire.

Trusted stewardship

We have more than five decades of experience fulfilling the charitable legacies of New Hampshire’s most generous citizens and businesses. We steward a growing collection of 1,700 funds worth a combined $625 million. We work hard to amplify the power of your charitable dollars. We are committed to responsible investment to grow your fund and maximize charitable impact. And we will continue to steward your legacy and invest in the causes you care about for generations to come.

Family matters

Our team works extensively with families across the generations and has expert advice about engaging the next generation in charitable giving. Philanthropy offers a way for families to learn together about community needs, prepare children for future wealth and share the joy and value of giving.

Network for good

Being part of the Foundation makes you part of a movement to make things better for New Hampshire. At events and briefings, you will join a network of the state’s most generous, engaged and effective donors, advisors, nonprofit leaders and partners in business, education and the public sector.
