Oxfam’s Corporate Donation Policy
Oxfam America follows strict processes for determining whether we as an organization wish to engage with a corporation, particularly where there is a funding opportunity. Oxfam’s capacity to speak out with authority and fairness on issues of poverty, distress, suffering and injustice will never be compromised by acceptance of funds or other relationships with companies.
Oxfam’s policy on corporate donations is to accept donations from corporations within a set of strict ethical guidelines. Oxfam does not accept funding from companies involved in production of weapons or weapons-related products or producing or marketing tobacco, infant formula, or firearms. Oxfam also does not accept funds from companies in sectors that would compromise Oxfam’s independence or any Oxfam affiliate’s advocacy, campaigning, or program work. Furthermore, Oxfam will not accept funds from companies that would risk damage to Oxfam’s public image, or professional reputation. To ensure that corporate donations meet these criteria, each potential donation is subject to a screening process, per Oxfam America’s Ethical Guidelines for Corporate Donations.
