Press Release – Oxford City Council partners with The Good Exchange to boost Small Community Grants Programme

Oxford City Council  has allocated £20,000 to the latest Small Grants Programme, following a successful pilot earlier this year, where the Council awarded grants of up to £1,000 available via The Good Exchange. In this latest round of grant funding, community organisations, voluntary groups, charities, not-for-profit organisations and other groups can apply for a small grant of up to £5,000 for a project, activities or event that benefits residents living in Oxford.

Councillor Christine Simm, Executive Board Member for Supporting Local Communities commented: “I am pleased that we are not only able to continue to support local charities and community groups through our Small Grants Scheme, but that we are also utilising an innovative online platform to provide that support. Our partnership with The Good Exchange will not only make it easier for local charities and community groups in Oxford to access much needed funding, but it also creates opportunities for groups to leverage further funding from other grant makers and generate donations and support through fundraising activities.”
