About Us

The Ragdoll Foundation is dedicated to supporting the creation, appreciation and awareness of imaginative and innovative content that reflects the world from a child’s point of view.

Through a combination of grant giving and special initiatives the Foundation aims:

To provide a space for alternative thinking, voices and practices, encourage self-confidence, innovation, risk taking and the sharing of ideas.

To seek new creative solutions by combining perspectives, cultures and disciplines to promote new approaches to creativity and innovation.

To seek partners, collaborate and share knowledge by creating connections and being responsive to supporting co-operative ventures across sectors.

The Ragdoll Foundation was established in 2000 by Anne and Barrie Wood supported by Ragdoll Productions granting it 15% of the company shares. Ragdoll’s back catalogue sold in 2013 to DHX media, releasing funding for the Foundation.
