Brilliant tongue in cheek article, suggesting the world of philanthropy is somewhat secretive like M15...but it doesn't have to be that way.

Hence the Beacon awards, shining a spotlight on the amazing individuals and families who are making a huge difference and enabling great social action in our communities.    

Later this week I have the privilege of meeting again with one of OCF's donors who won the Beacon Award for City Philanthropy in 2015 and I would love nothing better than to ensure we have several more nominations from across Oxfordshire this year.

I would love to hear from you especially if you can help me identify anyone you know who might inspire the judges?  Entries need to be in by 5th December.
