© Trust for Oxfordshire's Environment (TOE2) 2015
Charity Number: 1140563
Our Funders include: Grundon Waste Management Ltd - Patsy Wood Trust – Oxfordshire County Council – Beatrice Laing Trust – Network Rail - TVERC
TOE2 is not only a grant giver, but we also manage a number of Oxfordshire wide Programmes, delivered by a range of partners within the county. All of these programmes have been funded through donations from grant making trusts and foundations from within Oxfordshire and elsewhere in the UK.
With robust processes and accounting procedures, and attention to monitoring and evaluation, TOE2 is well placed to manage major funds directed towards specific projects and programmes in the county. With our partnership approach, and strong links with other environmental bodies in Oxfordshire, we ensure effective delivery and a reduced administrative burden on partner charities.
At a time of increased pressure on charity resources, TOE2’s role can significantly benefit a wide range of partners. As one Oxfordshire charity recently put it, “By funders putting their grants through TOE2, it reduces the amount of administrative time we have to put into it, so from our point of view, it’s a ‘win win’ all round!”
Patsy Wood Trust >
The Patsy Wood Trust supported the ENRICH project which encouraged and supported Oxfordshire’s community buildings to become more sustainable and energy efficient. The ENRICH project ran from April 2013 to January 2017 and resulted in 134 community buildings receiving an energy audit. Some recommendations can be done cost free, but others, such as the addition of insulation require funding. So far 59 audited community buildings have been awarded TOE2 grants towards implementing audit recommendations.
Beatrice Laing Trust >
Beatrice Laing Trust supported our Church Energy Project. The aim of the project was to broaden and develop the use of church buildings by making them more sustainable and cost effective through reducing wasted energy and considering renewable energy options where appropriate. The energy audit reports have provided PCC’s with a range of bespoke recommendations for energy efficiency improvements.
Pye Charitable Settlement >
TOE2 has been awarded two small grants by the Pye Charitable Settlement to support the general work of the Trust.
