Through our grant-making, we improve people’s lives across Oxfordshire.
OCF distributes between £1 and 2 million in grants every year to charities across Oxfordshire that are working at the grassroots level to tackle the most pressing problems faced by its citizens, including emergency response to crises such as COVID-19. This incorporates funds awarded at OCF’s discretion and according to our strategic priorities, as well as grants made through named funds and national funders. Read case studies on our grant-making
We publish full details of all the organisations we have supported via 360Giving, the open data source for grant funders. For a full list of OCF grants made since 2013, see our open data page.
Soundabout reaches children, young people and adults with severe or profound learning disabilities throughout Oxfordshire and enables them to enjoy making music. A grant from OCF’s COVID-19 Resilience Fund has enabled Soundabout’s music practitioner team to deliver Soundabout Live!: twice weekly sessions from home with the right equipment to ensure clear sound and vision.
