Orienteering Foundation logo

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 continues to raise funds and award 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, and we welcome grant applications for any UK projects that meet our objectives.  See the Apply for Funding page and examples of Projects Funded.
