HL Foundation

The HL Foundation is our charitable trust. We want to do more than empower people to save and invest. We want to help the next generation, we want to support local communities, improve people’s health and wellbeing and change people’s lives for the better. Our colleagues raise money and volunteer for charities and good causes who do all these things and more.

HL Foundation 2024

The HL Foundation has partnered with the Just Finance Foundation until 2026.

Their mission

To equip the people who families trust with the confidence, knowledge and inspiration to educate the next generation and build financially capable communities.

Research shows that children start to learn essential money habits as early as ages 3 through 7. However, financial education is rarely taught until secondary school. This means that gaps in a child’s ability to understand and relate to money are already in place by their teenage years.

We work directly with schools, families and communities to address these gaps and give every child an equal baseline understanding of money, regardless of their personal circumstances. This provides the essential foundation children need to become adults with the knowledge, skills and values to manage money wisely.

Their vision

A financially resilient nation where every individual has equal opportunity to thrive.

We’re also working to increase the reach and impact of financial education in the wider community. Our programmes are built to address gaps and upskill local leaders, broadening the knowledge of community members on financial issues and the support that is available for those in need.

Our commitment

Hargreaves Lansdown commits to supporting the local community by addressing the cost-of-living crisis through supporting financial education and resilience programmes in Bristol. We will be involved in a variety of fundraising activities and volunteering sessions in the upcoming year, to help provide resources and support to those who need it.

By supporting charities last year we:

  • Helped to fund and renovate affordable housing for 16-25 Independent People
  • Helped to fund a mental health worker and a mentoring coach to support young people’s wellbeing
  • Supported career guidance, financial wellness and inspiring future employment opportunities for vulnerable young adults

Over the next year we hope to:

  • Support financial education and resilience in local schools in the Bristol area
  • Be part of a programme which helps helped female victims gain meaningful employment and education
  • Encourage financial wellbeing in the local community

We have some ambitious goals for the coming year, but with the support of our clients and colleagues we’re sure we can get there
