The Dixon Foundation

There are presently no open calls for applications.

Welcome to our Application Platform! 

The Dixon Foundation offers grants and regenerative investment to projects that enable people and our natural world to flourish together.

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.

We have 2 open calls for applications per year, in January and in July. Each call is open for 6 weeks. Once the call is closed, we review concept notes and we aim to be in touch within 2 weeks to invite you to submit a full application, should you be successful.

Key Dates for our January 2022 Challenges:

  • Concept Note Submission Period: 17th Jan - 27th February
  • Full Application Submission Period: 14th March - 24th April
  • Informal Calls (if needed): 25th April - 6th May
  • Final Grant Decisions Made: By 6th June

You can find all of our current challenges at the bottom of this page.
