The UK's charity to promote innovation and to support people and projects in orienteering through fund-raising activities.
The Orienteering Foundation is a registered charity, independent of British Orienteering. It was set up with money from a bequest from Bertie & Elsie Ward, and is now raising further funds, and awarding grants. The objectives are to promote the sport of orienteering in the UK through enhancement, innovation, and alleviation of hardship.
The Orienteering Foundation is built on your generosity. We welcome all donations, no matter how large or small, and there are many ways you can contribute. See the Donate page.
Many grants have been made, for example supporting national teams at the World Schools Championships, regional squads training at home and abroad, and enhancing the Junior Home Internationals. There has been a historical focus on juniors, but we welcome grant applications for any UK projects that meet our objectives. See the Apply for Funding page.
We are very grateful to Paul and Judy Johnson who have helped us produce some distinctive new logos for the Orienteering Foundation.
