Altruistic Giving with the Highgate Charitable Foundation

Stanford Court News

The act of shopping and gift giving every holiday season can start to feel like a chore. Don’t let the gift exchange culture leave you feeling morally short-changed. This season, consider donating to a worthy cause that gives the holidays a deeper meaning and doesn’t clutter your home. As a part of Highgate, Stanford Court Hotel in San Francisco suggests guests donate to the Highgate Charitable Foundation.

The Highgate Charitable Foundation (HCF) is an umbrella organization that distributes donations to diverse public charities that focus on the betterment of the global community.


HCF is a public charity with one mission: to positively impact communities worldwide, especially those dealing with issues related to poverty, education and healthcare.

The foundation’s primary organizations are Save the Children and the Aga Khan Foundation.

Save the Children has worked to improve the lives of children for 100 years, attending to vulnerable communities with emergency aid in the face of natural disasters, war and other conflicts. The fund focuses specifically on better education, health care, and economic opportunities.

The Aga Khan Foundation focuses on sustainable development in poor nations, pulling together human, technical and financial resources for the most marginalized communities around the globe. The foundation is known for its special emphasis on human potential, which works to transform communities from within.

Guests can donate directly online. HCF serves as a vehicle for Highgate associates, guests, suppliers, and business partners to make a difference.

Highgate Charitable Foundation, Inc., is a public charity that gathers donations that are then contributed to other public charities. This Foundation benefits Save the Children Federation, Inc. and the Aga Khan Foundation USA, both 501(c)(3) public charities.
