Be part of something amazing


We started our charity to make a difference in the UK and across the world. We focus on three areas that really mean something to us: youth poverty, education and energy access.

About OVO Foundation

At OVO Energy we’re passionate about giving young people across the world a brighter future. Through OVO Foundation we support inspiring organisations with smart ideas, launch pioneering projects and volunteer for 1,000s of hours each year in our local communities. Not as a ‘tickbox’ exercise. Or to make ourselves look good. But because we genuinely care about making a difference. 


What we support

We strive to create lasting change in the following three areas:

Make a donation and we'll double it

When OVO customers make a monthly donation, we match that amount - doubling our power to make positive changes. We also cover all administration and staff costs, so 100% of your donation goes straight to our amazing projects.

Taking a radical new approach to youth homelessness

Our ‘Future Builders’ scheme offers young people a secure pathway out of homelessness - by giving them the chance to refurbish homes that they’ll actually live in. Plus, the opportunity to access an apprenticeship. At the end of this incredible journey, each apprentice will have the skills to find a job that gives them true independence.

Inspiring local children through skill-sharing

Education isn’t simply a means to getting a job and a roof over our heads, or even helping us win at scrabble (take THAT triple word score!). It unlocks our potential, makes us happier, and, as a result, drives world progress. See how we’re promoting education in our local areas.

Giving £100,000 to our communities

Our ‘OVO Gives Back’ scheme supports four local charities with 1,000s of hours of volunteering time, plus grants totaling £100,000. These grants are being used to support a community food-growing project, launch a new inter-generational programme, revamp a city farm play area and fund a digital arts programme for young homeless people.
