“As a legacy to my exceptional man, I intend to capture his belief in education, his desire to always help others less fortunate, his amazing force of nature, strong work ethic and his values of kindness & care. These will be the cornerstones of The David Doig Foundation for helping children & young adults create their own chances in life and helping to enable lasting change” - Gillian Doig

Our Purpose
