Feoffees’ Donations Policies

There are five principal criteria, each of which should be satisfied by a successful applicant.

  1. Geographic: Any grant should support people in Oxfordshire either directly or through charitable organisations.
  2. Community benefit or relief of individual hardship: Any grant should support projects whose primary objective is to provide community benefit or the relief of individual hardship.
  3. Need: Where there is competition for resources, applicants should demonstrate a need for the support which cannot readily be satisfied elsewhere.
  4. Sustainability: Applicants should show that their projects are, or will in the medium term, become sustainable without reliance on the Feoffees’ funding.
  5. Making a difference: Grants, other than of a nominal amount, must be such that they make a difference to the recipient.
