LCON is committed to supporting the residents of North Oxford to make ambitious reductions in carbon emissions by 2030. To do this effectively we rely on the support and generosity of members and supporters. We have a basic income of about £7k a year from a community energy scheme. This pays for our regular newsletter, the essential running costs that all charities have, and a small amount of paid co-ordination of our activities. Everything else we do relies on volunteer time and raising additional funding, and regular donations help us to do more. As a small tightly run organisation, we aim to spend every penny in the most efficient way possible. This means that your donation really can help us make a difference.
Donating a regular amount per month is a wonderful way to support LCON, as it allows us to expand our carbon cutting activities in North Oxford over the long term. If you’re time-poor but have some cash you would like to put to good use locally, please consider donating. As LCON is a registered charity (charity number 1142169), you can make a Gift Aid declaration with your gift. Please see below for more details.
