Oxfordshire Community Foundation improves lives and tackle inequality by investing in Oxfordshire’s dynamic charitable sector.
We are a charity that builds thriving communities through effective philanthropy.
Our county’s wealth, success and beauty hide a number of serious and shocking social problems. Local philanthropists choose to work with OCF because we bring an in-depth understanding of these needs and priority issues, alongside trusted relationships with our network of grassroots delivery charities and community groups. We champion this vibrant local charity sector as a crucial way to combat issues such as homelessness, educational inequality, and loneliness and isolation, awarding over £1 million in grants annually.
We work with philanthropists, businesses and the public sector, pooling their funds so that they can make a bigger difference together. Funders can feel confident of a safe pair of hands for their contributions, as we implement strong governance processes; conduct thorough due diligence on all grant applications; and report back with inspiring stories on the impact of their support.
We have been working in Oxfordshire since 1995.
