who we are

The Dixon Foundation is a UK-based charity that backs bold initiatives working to help people and our natural world flourish together.

We are curious, collaborative and driven by a deep sense of urgency to regenerate our planet. We work by setting challenges to some of the toughest issues faced within our thematic areas of interest, and fund impact-driven organisations that rise to our challenges with radical, scalable and sustainable solutions.


Our themes

Our challenges are designed to support the transition towards a sustainable land-use and ocean economy, and sit within the following themes. We have kept our themes broad to acknowledge the complex and interconnected systems and processes at play. Many of our challenges will fit within more than one of these themes, however they serve to guide us and the impact we are seeking to achieve.
