Our Mission

Dixie Foundation was established in 2014 by the Patel family as a tribute to Dixie Patel...a daughter...a sister...who was killed by a drunk driver in 1997. Dixie's parents and her two surviving sisters, Deepa and Priya, have made it a mission to carry out her legacy through creating the vision Dixie illustrated within the 20 years her beautiful soul roamed this planet.

The three causes that Dixie contributed to while she was alive was poverty, women empowerment, and education. Through the creation of the Dixie Foundation we intend to contribute through the use of financial resources, as well as creating programs in communities that need assistance.
