Support Us

ORG is a small organisation with big ambitions and your support is vital. Due to our reliance on quiet dialogue, we do not have the profile of larger organisations. We only accept sources of funding that allow us to retain our independence and integrity. Unlike most security policy think tanks, for example, we do not seek or accept funds from the arms industry.

This means that we rely on the generosity of individuals and trusts to continue our work building lasting peace and security. Long term, regular support is critical to our ability to plan and grow our programmes and create the sustainable change that is so needed.

There are four ways in which you can support our work financially:

  1. Become an ORG Sustainer
    Become an ORG Sustainer, by pledging £1,000 or more per year for at least three years. Sustainers will receive invitations to exclusive, twice-yearly briefings by high-level government and independent experts, as well as free copies of all our publications. More information is available here.
  2. Become an ORG Supporter
    Become an ORG Supporter by donating £5 a month or more using the Standing Order Form (see below). This can then be returned to the ORG office (the address is also on the form). Please also complete the Gift Aid Declaration Form, which will allow ORG to claim back a further 25% of the value of every donation.
  3. Make a one-off donation
    Make a one-off donation by sending a cheque payable to “Oxford Research Group” and completing the Gift Aid Declaration on the Gift Aid Form below. Gift Aiding your donation allows ORG to claim back 25% of the value of your donation. You can also donate online by debit or credit card through our BT MyDonate page, through PayPal (or, if you prefer, through the Charities Aid Foundation by clicking the link at the bottom of this page).
  4. Remember ORG in your will
    Legacy gifts are a vital source of unrestricted funding for ORG and can help reduce any inheritance tax bill on your death. For more details, please download the Legacy Pack at the end of this page, which gives information on writing or amending your will.


Whether you are able to become a regular ORG Supporter or Sustainer, make a one-off donation or make a legacy gift in your will, your support will make a vital contribution to the future security of millions.

For more information on supporting our work please contact our Lead Fundraiser Louise Pudney or call 0207 549 0298.

ORG also relies upon the support of a number of trusts and foundations, whom we acknowledge here.
