Leaving legacies, granting with impact – forever!
Oxford Community Foundation (OCF) helps people and organizations leave a personalized, lasting legacy in Oxford, to make it a better place.
OCF keeps money in Oxford County. OCF brings money to Oxford County through our partnership with Community Foundations of Canada. OCF is one of 191 community foundations across Canada and is the only community foundation that serves all of Oxford County.
OCF has granted $1 million to over 100 local organizations. Grants support the entire community and are dispersed to the following areas: Arts and Culture, the Environment, Education, Health & Wellness, Heritage, Community & Social Services, and Sports & Recreation.
We make charitable giving easy. We provide you with the opportunity to target your areas of interest, and we protect your legacy by investing and granting your funds wisely.
MEMORIAL: On February 3, 2021 we lost a local Hero Among Us – Jean Elizabeth Matheson. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Jean’s family and many friends. Memorial information and how to make a donation in Jean’s name can be found by going to: https://oxfordcommunityfoundation.org/our-partners/
