Overall, the confederation reported a surplus of €99.1M for FY 2021–22, a strong financial result following the impact of the Covid pandemic during the past two years. Higher income, particularly related to our trading operations, enabled us to strengthen our financial position in order to create greater impact in the future.
Income & Expenditure - the ins and outs
Oxfam International and all affiliates have worked together to strengthen Oxfam’s finances over the past 12 months following the impact of Covid-19. The focus during FY2021–22 has been to grow our income whilst ensuring strong financial management of our costs. Re-opening of shops enabled increased income to offset fixed shop expenditure, which has been a critical part of the overall confederation recovery.

Annual Report 2021-2022
Inequality harms us all. But none of this is inevitable. Which is why we fight inequality – we as Oxfam, but more so, with our partners in movements and communities. This Annual Report covers our work as Oxfam globally. It is an expression of our collective effort. It is a response forged by women’s rights advocates, water engineers, shop volunteers, health campaigners and young activists. It’s a response in which Oxfam supports leaders and communities who know the reality of inequality best.
