OxFizz is a rapidly growing social enterprise which raises money for charities chosen by our network of volunteers and works to improve access to top universities for students from non-traditional university backgrounds.
OxFizz is a unique social enterprise, tackling educational disadvantage and raising funds for charities. We're approaching our 10th birthday and on target to hit our target of £1m generated for charities.
We have three social impact objectives:
To raise vital funds for charities
To help students from disadvantaged backgrounds fulfil their potential through access to top universities
To engage recent graduates in philanthropy and volunteering
Our model is unique:
We sell educational services helping students to access top universities
These services are delivered by our network of over 250 volunteers, who select charities to which we donate the profits they have generated
We have donated over £800k over the last 9 years and are aiming to hit £1m by 2018
We use our expertise and financial resources to deliver pro-bono services to students from disadvantaged backgrounds, giving them the skills, confidence and networks to access top universities
Around 1 in 5 service hours are free of charge, delivered in partnerships with The Access Project, Villiers Park, Sutton Trust Fulbright Commission, Ark Schools and TeachFirst
