How to support us Great Dixter is run by an independent charitable trust and is funded by its own activities and donations. The garden, house and education programme cost the trust over £1 million a year to run. Around £700,000 of this comes from visitor, nursery and event income but the remaining £300,000 has to be found from donations as the trust receives no regular public subsidy. You can help fill this gap by making a donation, becoming a Friend or leaving a bequest. Your kind contribution will help secure Great Dixter in perpetuity for everyone to enjoy.
