Support a club

While Active at Oxford provides support for the wider sporting community, we understand that some people may prefer to donate directly to specific sports clubs. Support from alumni and friends is vital for ongoing club development, providing top level coaching and equipment, and reducing financial barriers to participation.

At Oxford, we believe that sport is complementary to our academic mission, helping our students develop the life skills, confidence and wellbeing to succeed in study, society and within the workplace, whether they are an Olympian or an enthusiast.

Donations to Active at Oxford, or to clubs directly, have been used to support the Oxford Sport community in a range of areas, such as:

  • Providing funding to help clubs recover from the impact of Covid-19, and to support them with new projects that will get more of the Oxford community active within their sport;
  • Supporting the health and wellbeing of students, and promoting access through a range of initiatives – such as a new inter-college web and mobile application, Playwaze, which aims to give an online presence to inter-college sports competitions so that opportunities are visible to all students and has subsequently let to an increase in participation; and
  • Ensuring that the sport and physical activity offer within the University is well promoted to all new and returning students and providing funds that enable us to respond to any unexpected challenges.
