We support people in need across the Boroondara community

Hawthorn Community Chest (HCC) is a network of Boroondara residents and businesses who help those in our local community experiencing difficult circumstances.  HCC is an independent, registered charity, established in 1958, and over the past 64 years it has worked to make life easier for hundreds of local people and families.

We are very lucky to be able to give 100 percent of donations away as grants. HCC has DGR status, so all donations made to us are fully tax deductible.

HCC covers Hawthorn and surrounding areas such as Camberwell, Kew, Ashburton, Balwyn, Surrey Hills and Canterbury.

Your support really can make a difference to the daily lives of the people around you.
