What is the Oxfam Circle?

The Oxfam Circle is a community that allows you to direct your donation to a particular area of interest or specific project and feel a deep connection to the impact of your support.

By making an annual financial commitment to support Oxfam’s critical work in the fight against poverty, you are making a declaration that goes beyond a financial transaction.

You’re inspiring others to give, creating meaningful changes in poor communities, establishing new leaders who are empowered to make a real difference, and forging a pathway for a better, more equal world.

Your financial support





How you can direct your donation

When you support Oxfam your values and compassion will transform the lives of people all over the world, for many years to come.
Gender Justice
Discrimination and injustice are major causes of poverty worldwide, and women and girls bear the brunt of it.
First Peoples Justice
Poverty in Australia is just as harsh as it is in developing countries and it’s Indigenous Australians who are among the most disadvantaged.
Economic Justice
The divide between rich and poor undermines progress against poverty. Inequality robs the poorest people of the support they need to improve their lives.
Climate Justice
We support those most vulnerable to the climate crisis, while fighting to protect the planet.
