Donate now

We know that many kind-hearted and generous people live in Oxfordshire who want to give whatever they can to their community. If a longer-term investment via a named fund isn’t for you, we also welcome smaller regular or occasional donations.

If you have up to £1,500 to spare, we can combine this with funds from our other donors to help make grants to our network of local charities and community groups. If you wish to make a larger donation, please contact us so that we can agree how you would like us to spend it.

To see how we have spent previous funds, please see our annual accounts page where you will find all of our impact reports.

You can give to the fund online, or make a donation using one of the methods below, marking your donation for the “Health and Wellbeing Fund”.
