We are launching a major fundraising campaign, the Dream Big! Appeal, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.
As the football club's official charity, we have pledged to step up our activity to inspire and engage children across the county to dream big, particularly those living in Oxfordshire's most disadvantaged communities, through the power of football.
With your help we can do so much more to inspire the next generation and that is why we have launched the Dream Big! Appeal to raise at least £30,000.
The additional funds will enable Oxford United in the Community to help more children in our community dream big. A series of celebratory events and fundraising schemes will be launched across the year as part of the Dream Big! Appeal.
Please use #OUITC30Years when sharing this campaign on social media.
As Oxford United's official charity, Oxford United in the Community helps inspire youngsters to reach their potential and improve their health and wellbeing via the power of football, engagement and education.
Jeremy Faulkner, Oxford United in the Community's Chair of Trustees says:
To have delivered community football programmes and wider support across the county for three decades is a fantastic achievement and everyone who has played a part should be very proud.
Oxford United in the Community was one of the original football community programmes in the country and overtime developed into a charity under the EFL Trust umbrella, which provided a stronger platform to help others.
So much has been achieved in helping and inspiring youngsters in the county but we want to do more. As we celebrate our anniversary, were calling on the community to help us help others and back our Dream Big! Appeal. Every penny raised will make a difference.
Donations will help the charity provide more programmes in schools, delivering health and well-being advice and teaching children life skills via the power of football.
