As for so many people, 2022 was a year of post-pandemic reflection and refocusing for us at OCF. In our 2022 impact report, we look at some of the stories of change behind our grant-making total, which has exceeded £2m for the second year running. The report gives update from our CEO and Chair on changes in 2022 and plans for 2023, including how we have doubled down on our core mission of building thriving communities through effective philanthropy.
Our Journal of a Pandemic Year reports on our response to COVID-19 from the start of the pandemic until April 2021. During this time £1,014,469 in COVID-19 grants were awarded, reaching around 138,000 beneficiaries. The report gives detail about which activities were supported and shares individual stories of hope and resilience, as well as reflecting on where we go next.
Our 2020 Impact Report looks at our wider activity during 2019 and 2020, including our pandemic response but also the achievements of our strategic partnerships, named funds and other grant-making.
