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.
