We’re really pleased to share with you our impact report for 2023. The report looks at our areas of focus for our grant-making during the year, which totalled £2.3 million, as well as stories of hope from some of the vital charities we have funded.

The charitable sector in Oxfordshire has risen to incredible challenges over the last few years, and proved itself yet again as the bedrock of our communities. OCF was proud to support with record levels of grants in 2023, thanks to our generous donors.
Charities have never been more necessary, but their existence has never been more precarious. Rising rents, higher energy contracts and increased salaries to retain valuable staff are here to stay. Now, more than ever, local philanthropy is needed.
We have been able to support 273 organisations in Oxfordshire where our key focus for the year has been investing in preventative measures and resilience, alongside immediate relief.

Featuring just a few of the groups that we have been able to fund, we share insights into how the grants have been used and how it has benefited some of the most vulnerable people in our county.
We continue to be thankful for your generosity and support. Together we are making a huge difference to the county’s network of grassroots charities, where every pound has a transformative effect.
