Connecting Generosity,
Empowering Communities

At The Robin Hood Foundation, we strive to bridge the gap between generosity and those in need. We create a transparent and efficient platform that connects donors with deserving causes. Through rigorous vetting, strategic partnerships, and local insights, we ensure donations reach underprivileged communities and make a meaningful impact. With a focus on accountability and compassion, we empower individuals and businesses to create transformative change. Join us in our mission to uplift communities and empower lives.

About Us

The Robin Hood Foundation started informally in May 2005 when Cindy Norcott noticed she could clothe at least 10 underprivileged babies with just her own daughters’ outgrown baby clothes. Cindy decided to distribute bags of second-hand clothing and toiletries to needy new mums at St Mary’s Hospital.

Seeing the mums crying with joy and hearing horror stories of some newborn babies leaving hospital wrapped in newspaper, motivated Cindy and her team of volunteers to intensify their efforts and the “Love the Babies” project was born.

Within a few months, Cindy heard the plight of needy Gogos who had taken on their orphaned grandchildren, the team then started making up “Gogo Bags” to assist with feeding and caring for these children.

Due to the growing need from various poor communities and the willing support from donors, it was decided to form an NPO and in 2007, the Robin Hood Foundation was founded.

"Service to others is the rent you pay
for your room here on earth"


How you can help?

There are various ways for corporates and private individuals to get involved with our Foundation. 
Not only do your donations change lives but your time makes an even bigger difference.

With only one full-time employee, the essence of the Foundation are the women, men and children who volunteer their time, resources and energy. At every packing session and at each visit, we are always blessed with our community of “Vollies” who show up, bringing with them an abundance of fun, love and joy to all our events. They are the heart of our Foundation and give meaning and purpose to everything we do.

Your support is vital in our mission to empower communities and transform lives. Whether through your donation of pre-loved items, time, skills or financial contributions, every act of kindness makes a significant difference. We are grateful for your generosity and dedication to creating positive change. Together, let us continue to uplift and empower those in need, making a lasting impact on their lives. Thank you for being a part of our journey towards a brighter future.
