Our approach is simple: we support causes and institutions we believe in, with an emphasis on helping the disadvantaged and fostering excellence.

In carrying out our mission, we only support initiatives that have personal meaning to our family members, and do not evaluate unsolicited requests. We avoid spreading ourselves thin by concentrating on a small number of projects in which we are deeply involved as decision-makers. We seek to have the greatest impact in the shortest period of time with the most efficient use of our resources. Last, we insist that the outcome of our work is as tangible, measurable and valuable as possible. 

The Hutchins Family Foundation (HFF) was established by Debbie and Glenn Hutchins to manage the process by which the family decides what to support and how to engage. To date, we have focused our efforts in the fields of health care, education and public policy.
