Where we donate
Since we were founded, oxfizz has donated nearly £1 million to charities our volunteers choose.
When our volunteers work with students whose families or schools can pay for their support, we donate the profits to a charity of their choice.
We make these charity donations at the end of each financial year. See below for more information on where our volunteers choose to donate the money raised in 2019.
In 2019, oxfizz’s access programme was the most popular cause to donate to
In total, 40 volunteers made charity donations to OxFizz’s university access programme. This donation was £7300 in total.
As well as volunteering directly on our programme, this fundraising is another vital way volunteers can support our social mission. We’re so grateful for their contributions - and you can read more about how we’ll use this money to grow our access work here.
Campus Children’s Holidays - which provides respite holidays for children in the Merseyside area - was second, raising an incredible £4900. This was achieved by a dedicated team of 14 volunteers.
volunteers donated 25% of their fundraising money to widening access causes
In terms of proportions, volunteers gave 25% of their fundraising money to widening access causes.
OxFizz has announced plans to use this money to help grow our university access programme - including by expanding our e-learning resources, to reach disadvantaged students outside of London and the South East.
volunteers gave a further 28% of donations to charities working elsewhere in education
Volunteers gave 28% of their donations to charities working in other areas of education and youth services.
So over half of all 2019 volunteer donations went to charities working in education, youth services, and widening access causes in particular.
health and social causes were also popular among volunteers
And 11 volunteers donated £2800 toward UK social issues, supporting causes like The Advocacy Academy, Jimmy’s Cambridge, and The National Association For Children Of Alcoholics.
