OCF has now opened the next round in our Delivering Impact grants programme, which will focus on community friendship. We are seeking to award grants that bring people from different backgrounds together. We will invest up to £10k.
OCF’s Community Integration Grants funded projects that nurture mutual understanding, trust and friendship between people of different ethnicities, ages or socio-economic backgrounds. At an event on Tuesday, all the charities funded came together to celebrate their work, alongside the donors who enabled the grants.
OCF has awarded grants, totalling over £58,000 and supporting nearly 32,000 people, as part of a funding round to support COVID-19 response and recovery. These grants, funded from our Community Resilience Fund, aimed to give smaller organisations vital funding as they continue to respond to the pandemic, or enter the recovery phase.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Open Office at the end of February, as we celebrated community and 25 years of OCF. As part of the event, we asked ‘What does Community mean to you?’
OCF is seeking donations to its High Sheriff’s Community Integration fund, which brings together people from different backgrounds, builds mutual understanding and encourages a sense of belonging to the wider community.
