Oxfordshire Community Foundation Cost of Living Grants (closing date: Monday 26th June 2023)

Oxfordshire Community Foundation will be opening a new round of grant funding to help community organisations tackle the cost of living and build resilience. Applications will open on Friday 9th June and close on Monday 26th June at midday.

Following our recent consultation with local charitable organisations about how the continued high cost of living is affecting them, we have now published a report rounding up the findings of our survey and workshop. View the report

We are now drafting the terms of reference for the next round of grant funding from the Cost of Living Fund, based on the conclusions from this consultation. Due to the shorter-than-usual application period, we wanted to give applicants as much notice as possible of the key dates, which are:

  • Application period – from 5pm on Friday 9th June to midday on Monday 26th June 2023
  • Funding decisions announced – by Friday 4th August 2023
  • Grants paid – by 31st August 2023

Details of amounts available and eligibility will be published on 9th June along with the online application form. However, we can confirm that this next round of funding will allow applications for core costs, which we hope will help grantees plan for next autumn and winter.
