Newsquest Oxfordshire, parent company of the Oxford Mail, invites applications each year for registered charities looking for grants towards substantial projects that require and merit awards of between £5,000 and £10,000.
Applications that arrive after 5pm on Monday, October 8, 2019 will not be accepted.
Please be aware that only electronic applications using this form will be accepted. Forms from the Gannett Foundation’s American website or any other Newsquest publication will be rejected, as will those posted to the newspaper.
We value practical and creative projects that bring lasting benefits to the communities and neighbourhoods served by our newspapers and online audience. That includes schemes for neighbourhood improvement and local problem-solving, economic development, youth development, education and cultural enrichment, care of the elderly or infirm, help for the disadvantaged or disabled, and environmental conservation.
We particularly invite clearly reasoned applications asking for specific items of equipment or materials. Most of our applications are for relatively modest sums meeting every-day needs, but we will consider worthwhile projects on a bigger scale. And we are also able to join with other contributors to support elements of more ambitious projects. While preference will be given to ideas which create a durable legacy for the community, we will consider single events or projects of limited duration that otherwise meet our criteria.
