Coronavirus: OCF launches new Community Resilience Fund

Unlocking the power of our community to respond better and recover stronger

We have launched a new fund to help community and voluntary organisations meet the new needs and challenges created by the Coronavirus. OCF’s new Community Resilience Fund has been kick-started with an inspiring direct donation from the Indigo Trust.

Local organisations are best placed to respond to the current crisis. The ‘might’ or power of these organisations rests with their combined resources. Many may be informal and run only by volunteers, others will have staff who could support and coordinate collective efforts more widely. We want them to feel reassured and empowered to switch from their usual activity, redeploying their energy and expertise to doing the things that will make the biggest difference now necessary.

These are extraordinary times calling for extraordinary responses. Please donate now.

You can donate online through our funding platform with charity checkout.


Giving through a community foundation means that your charitable investment is in a safe pair of hands. Any donation you give us can be combined with funds from our other donors, so your contribution really will make a difference.

If you wish to make a larger donation directly, please contact us to talk about the different ways you can do this.
