The Oak Hill Fund is a left-of-center grantmaking organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia.  The Oak Hill Fund was established in 2001 as a 501(c)(3) organization from the division of the W. Alton Jones Foundation, along with the Blue Moon Fund (now the Cassiopeia Foundation) and the Edgerton Foundation. 
Oak Hill Fund grants are directed towards environmentalist projects, women’s health initiatives, and pro-abortion organizations.
The IRS gave Oak Hill Fund tax exempt status in 2001.  The Fund arose from the division of the W. Alton Jones Foundation. W. Alton Jones was an oil executive responsible for completing 3128 miles of oil pipelines from Texas to cities on the East Coast.  Upon the dissolution of his Foundation, three new organizations were created, including the Oak Hill Fund.  Each of the three new organizations is run by Jones’s descendants. Architect William Edgerton, Jones’s grandson, has been president of the Oak Hill Fund since its foundation.
Oak Hill Fund grants provide “overhead funding” for advocacy projects.  There are two main areas in which grant funding is focused: environmental activism and women’s reproductive health, especially abortion rights and contraception access.
Women’s Health Programs
The Oak Hill Fund focuses grants on projects which work to make emergency contraceptives available without a prescription and expand access to long-acting reversible contraceptives such as intrauterine devices.  Until 2016, grants were also given to projects seeking to expand public-school sexual education programs.  The group only provides grants in the southeastern United States. 
The Oak Hill Fund contributed over $981,000 in grant funding to pro-abortion organizations and projects in 2017, 20 percent of its total grant payouts that year.  This includes both general funding for pro-abortion organizations and grants given explicitly to further abortion access.
In 2017 alone the Oak Hill Fund provided over $200,000 in grants to the National Network of Abortion Funds and the Hopewell Fund.  The National Network of Abortion Funds is designed to “remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access” by connecting women seeking an abortion with organizations that will fund the procedure.  The Hopewell Fund is a funding organization in the Arabella Advisors network.  The grant given to the Hopewell Fund by the Oak Hill Fund was granted with the express purpose of providing loans and grants to low-income women for use in paying for abortions. 
Also in 2017, the Oak Hill Fund gave a $334,125 grant to the Whole Women’s Advocacy Alliance with to open a new clinic in Charlottesville and promote abortion advocacy.  The Oak Fund also has a demonstrated interest in expanding access to abortion, as demonstrated by an $80,000 grant to the NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation. 
Aside from women’s health issues, the Oak Hill Group focuses on environmental advocacy. Specifically, they give grant priority to projects that educate the public and policy makers, install renewable energy in low-income neighborhoods, create finance models for solar and wind power, and “defend against harmful fossil and nuclear fuel projects.”  In spite of being in favor of renewable energy reform, the Oak Hill Group is adamantly against the use of nuclear power. 
Smaller projects include water quality projects, conservation of coral reefs, food security, and protection of various tree species.
