The Ozanne Foundation believes in a world where all are accepted and equally valued. We therefore work with religious organisations around the world to eliminate discrimination based on sexuality or gender in order to celebrate the equality and diversity of all.
Our work focuses on our three core themes:
This three-fold strategy of ‘Encounter – Educate – Empower’ looks to create opportunities for meaningful encounters with LGBTI people of faith with those of a more conservative mindset. In addition, the Foundation will look to tackle misunderstandings about LGBTI people through better education of the science surrounding sexuality and gender issues, and the impact of prejudice on then mental health. Finally, it will also empower people to speak out in their immediate communities and equip them with the tools they need to help bring about change.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
