Welcome to Okehampton United Charity and Okehampton Educational Foundation
Okehampton United Charity was created in 1873 to manage a number of land holdings in the Okehampton area. Its income was used to provide general charitable benefits in the Okehampton and its four Hamlets. In 1910 a separate charity, Okehampton Educational Foundation was created to provide educational benefits in the same area. Sales of land for development in 2001 and 2005 have created an investment fund which provides a substantial income. For more detailed history please visit Okehampton United Charity - A Past History.
