Oak Foundation accepts unsolicited requests for funding through a letter of enquiry.

Follow these steps:

Step 1: Review Oak Foundation's criteria for funding

Read Oak Foundation's criteria for funding,  review previous grants in our grant database and assess whether your organisation meets the general requirements of the Foundation.

Step 2: Read Programme requirements

Each programme has its own goals, geographic scope, funding restrictions and requirements for funding. Please read our programme pages for details.

Step 3: Submit a request for funding

Organisations who are interested in seeking a grant should submit a letter of enquiry through our online form.  

We will respond within three months if we require further information or if the applicant is invited to submit a formal proposal. Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests that we receive if you do not receive a reply, please assume your enquiry was not accepted.

We would be most appreciative if you do not contact the Foundation directly to discuss your request.  For initial contact, please do not telephone or visit the offices. Thank you for your understanding.
