What is the Oxfam Circle?

The Oxfam Circle is a community that allows you to direct your donation to a particular area of interest or specific project and feel a deep connection to the impact of your support.

By making an annual financial commitment to support Oxfam’s critical work in the fight against poverty, you are making a declaration that goes beyond a financial transaction.

You’re inspiring others to give, creating meaningful changes in poor communities, establishing new leaders who are empowered to make a real difference, and forging a pathway for a better, more equal world.
