OVO Foundation was created to find and fund innovative ideas that solve big social issues. The projects we fund wouldn’t exist without our support. And we wouldn’t exist without the support of 90,000+ OVO customers who donate each month.

The OVO Foundation team works collaboratively with innovative and inspiring organisations to come up with smart ideas that give young people a better future. Hand-in-hand with them, we’re tackling the root problems in youth poverty, energy access and education – and empowering people to change their lives for good.
Save lives and improve education. All with renewable energy.
Help young homeless people gain the independence they deserve.
Level the playing field for children from less advantaged backgrounds.
We’re not promising to make a difference. We’ve already made one.
It started with 3 young homeless people in Bristol learning the skills to renovate the homes they now live in – watch how they did it, as we continue to take Future Builders to even more UK cities.
Through Project Jua, we’ve electrified 20 schools and health facilities in the most remote parts of Kenya, enabling health clinics to power life-saving equipment for the first time and providing schools with lighting to so that children can study at night.
A radical new approach to ending youth homelessness
Our Future Builders project breaks the cycle of repeat homelessness by giving young people the chance to renovate homes they’ll live in and the skills to find a job. Initial research suggests that every £1 we invest in the scheme creates £11.10 of social value.
We believe investing in children’s early years can level the playing field for life. That’s why we’re funding a project that focuses on children from less advantaged backgrounds and working with their parents to ensure children are ready to start school and settle in once they get there.
By providing local charities with a cash injection every year, our “OVO Gives Back” scheme has supported a community food-growing project, launched a new intergenerational programme, revamped a city farm play area and funded a digital arts programme for young homeless people.
