Who we are
Inspiring future engineers
The James Dyson Foundation, Dyson's charitable arm, introduces young people to the exciting world of engineering, encouraging them to think differently, make mistakes and realize their engineering potential.
"We want to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists and we want to do this by hands-on learning and experimentation."
We have three charitable objectives
Our primary mission is to inspire future engineers, but we also support medical research and the local community around Dyson's US HQ in Chicago.
Founded by James Dyson
James set up the James Dyson Foundation because he's passionate about encouraging, inspiring and cultivating the next generation of engineers.
