The Dixon family lead by example, living and breathing sustainability in their daily lives and hoping that their actions will inspire others to do so, too.

Having spent many years as private donors, The Dixon Foundation Chairman, Dr Mark Dixon and his family decided to create a family Foundation to fund more projects that would make a greater impact on causes close to their hearts. The Dixon Foundation was launched in 2020 and is proud to support big ideas that help build a healthy, sustainable world for every generation.

Why set challenges?

As a family, the Dixon’s have been discussing environmental challenges and their solutions around the dinner table for quite some time. Over the years, these conversations have shaped a learning journey, challenged their assumptions and sparked bright ideas which has previously shaped their private philanthropy.

These dinner table discussions carry on today, and have become an integral part of how The Dixon Foundation works.
