About Us

Our FOUNDER

Marta Drury founded the Heart and Hand Fund in 1999 after speaking to a friend at 2am in Pristina, Kosova who told her that the Serbian army was going door to door in their neighborhood and herding people onto boxcars.


She is a full time socially responsible philanthropist and investor with an especial interest in women and children.  In 2005, she was nominated as one of the 1000 Women for Peace for the Nobel Peace Prize. Marta Drury lives in rural northern California.

Our Story

Since its inception in 1999, the Fund has provided unrestricted funding to organizations on the ground in Croatia, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Montenegro. 

We’ve learned over and over that activists often start projects on their own when they see unmet needs. One of Heart & Hand’s guiding principles is recognizing the wisdom of local activists to determine what funding is needed within the limits of our budget. We would like to add new grants to new and emerging projects without neglecting our long-time partners.
