Get involved

Ditchley has an opportunity to make a major impact on the future.  To do this it needs to increase its reach and capabilities and to make sure its facilities are cutting edge, whilst preserving one of the finest historic houses in the United Kingdom as a unique setting for conversation, connection and empathy.

Ditchley is independent of all governments and political parties and, in addition to income from its endowment and carefully selected private events, relies on support from like minded foundations, companies and visionary private individuals.  

The Ditchley Foundation is a UK Registered Charity (no 309657). 

There are several ways you can support Ditchley:

  • Unrestricted donations where we use the funds for a variety of ends to deliver Ditchley’s mission.
  • Support for our programme and convening capabilities.
  • Support to sustain and restore the extraordinary heritage of Ditchley Park and its estate.
  • Through legacies
  • By volunteering your time and expertise.

An online donation portal is under construction and will shortly be available.

If you would like to discuss a donation or volunteering, please contact Katie Williams, The Ditchley Foundation, Ditchley Park, Enstone, Chipping Norton, OX7 4ER.
