We do our best but there are always more churches in need of financial support than we have funds to give. We welcome any support that you may be able to offer. As the trust is primarily run by volunteers you can be confident that any donation you make will directly benefit religious buildings in the county.
We provide financial help for repairs and improvements to churches and chapels of all denominations in Oxfordshire in order to help keep them fit for their purpose – for worship, and as a community resource. We could not make grants without the help of our supporters
Since the OHCT was founded almost £3.5 million has been spent preserving, developing and renovating some of the County’s most treasured churches. If you, like us want to help preserve Oxfordshire’s churches and improve them for your community, there are a number of ways you can donate:
Make a donation by cheque. Please make the cheque out to the ‘Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust’ and send to Fundraising, Campaign Office, Ground Floor, 6 Church Green, Witney OX28 4AW
Make a donation by bank transfer. Please pay to Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust, a/c 50712825 at Barclays Oxford City Branch sort code 20-65-18. Please use: “OHCT” as your reference.
Make a donation by standing order. Please complete and return this form: (Individual Family Membership Form) to Fundraising, Campaign Office, Ground Floor, 6 Church Green, Witney OX28 4AW
Monthly and annual gifts pledged over a period of time can provide a reliable fundraising income for the Trust and can help with planning.
With Gift Aid and tax-relief for higher rate taxpayers a little monthly or annually can certainly go a long way.
