Partner Gateways

HCF offers two online platforms to facilitate access to donor and grantmaking services. The Grants Portal is for our local nonprofits to create an account and apply for grants. DonorSphere is an online portal where donors can interact with their funds 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via a secure, password-protected platform. Donors can view fund balances and fund history as well as access funding opportunities and important documents.
