Haverford Township (named after the town of Haverfordwest in Wales, UK) is a home rule township in Delaware County, near Philadelphia, in southeastern Pennsylvania, United States. It maintains its legal name as the Township of Haverford, presumably for historic reasons. Despite being under a home rule charter since 1977, it continues to operate under a Board of Commissioners divided into wards,[1] as do "First Class" townships that are still under the Pennsylvania Township Code.

Haverford Township contains portions of the communities of Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Ardmore, Drexel Hill, and Wynnewood. The unincorporated "town" of Havertown lies wholly within Haverford Township. The initial 2010 US Census population was 48,491.

Haverford, along with Upper Darby, Cheltenham, Lower Merion together form as the major inner ring suburbs of Philadelphia.
