We're the leading independent funder for Oxfordshire's environment.
The Trust for Oxfordshire's Environment (TOE) raises funds for environmental projects that benefit the people and wildlife of our county.
Our core funding areas
Most of TOE's funding is dedicated to three key areas of work:
We fund projects that improve access to the countryside and help people engage with the environment.
We fund projects that protect and enhance the diversity Oxfordshire's habitats and wildlife.
We fund projects which aim to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
These featured programmes offer significant sources of funding for biodiversity projects in addition to our main grants scheme.
Offsets & Network Rail
Network Rail is making grants of between £10,000 and £100,000 available following unavoidable habitat loss resulting from the electrification of the Great Western Railway line. Woodland projects are specifically encouraged to apply.
Offsets & planning
Local planning authorities can make developers fund biodiversity offsetting projects to compensate for habitat losses at development sites. We're able to administer these funds and offer grants for suitable sites and projects.
