Welcome to the Oxford Institute of Charity

The charity sector has been a vital part of our society and a key contributor to the economy for many decades. The Oxford Institute of Charity (OIC) recognises the challenges the sector faces in a very changed world. Through the use of scholarly, but practical research, we aim to help make the sector stronger and more sustainable.

Who we are

The Oxford Institute of Charity (OIC) is a collaboration between New College Oxford and Charity Futures. We aim to ensure charity remains a vivid and vital part of our society.

What we do

Core to OIC is the delivery of high calibre, independent, contemporary research that will be of practical use to the global charity community.

Who we work with

We know we are stronger together: we want to build from this principle and engage other academic institutes and stakeholders in the charity sector – both nationally and internationally.
