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.

The objectives are to promote the sport of orienteering in the UK through enhancement, innovation, and alleviation of hardship.
