The Oak Foundation commits its resources to address issues of global, social and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged.
The Foundation comprises a group of philanthropic organizations based in various countries around the world. They have 11 programmes, through which we have made more than 4,000 grants to organizations around the world. Their six main programs are: Environment, Prevent Child Sexual Abuse, Housing and Homelessness, International Human Rights, Issues Affecting Women and Learning Differences. In addition their Trustees support causes that fall outside the remits of the other programmes through the Special Interest Programme. There are also four national programs: Brazil, Denmark, India and Zimbabwe.
