THE HURLINGHAM CLUB FOUNDATION
We are proud to launch The Hurlingham Club Foundation, a charitable foundation that is the first of its kind in our 150-year history, and has been initiated, set up and led by members and the Club. We wish to harness our access to the time, grounds and financial assets of the Club and its members to benefit our neighbours in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and wider London area.
As a Foundation, we will choose projects based on location, our own values (excellence, prudence, integrity and courtesy) and those of a sporting nature. Projects will also be chosen for maximum impact; as a Foundation it will be important to see and measure tangible charitable impacts in all the work we will do.
WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
The Hurlingham Club Foundation’s mission is to utilise The Hurlingham Club resources to improve, enrich and protect the lives of members of our community and our environment.
Our available resources include the Club’s physical assets and donations of time and money from Club members, staff and other supporters.
Our Hurlingham community encompasses the Club’s close neighbours, the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and the wider London area.
We aim to be a powerful force for good, making a positive difference to those around us who are in need.
