Oxfordshire 500 is based on the idea that a group of members (who are anonymous to each other) pay a very small amount of money each month that collectively turns into a small donation to a local person, group or cause in the county.    It provides a very targeted £500 gift each month that could make a lot of difference to a family or community group that is struggling in some way.   The person or people getting the award are nominated and voted on by the members of Oxfordshire 500 who are also monthly contributors. 

Since November 2021 Oxfordshire 500 has given monthly gifts of at least £500.  Please look at past donations on the History page.

We have given two donations in April.  The first to a family with two children aged 2 and 4 months. She is on maternity leave and her husband, who is self employed, is off sick due to waiting for an operation.  He is not able to go back to work.  Secondly we gave a donation to someone diagnosed with breast cancer who is unable to work.  She has no recourse to public funds and needs income to pay for her rent whilst having chemo.


Next request for nominations will be sent out end May
