The Geraldine C. M. Livingston Foundation

The Foundation was created through the foresight and generosity of the late Geraldine Livingston. Upon her death in 1994 the Foundation became active and received IRS pixapproval as a 501 (c)(3) Private Operating Foundation. The Foundation is governed by a board of eight trustees: Sylvia Ripley Addison; John Finlayson, Vice Chairman; Dearl Hemphill; Julie Ripley Miller; Peter Miller; Joseph O. Milligan, Chairman; Sumner Reed, Secretary and Treasurer; and Rosemary Ripley.

The primary asset of the Foundation is Dixie Plantation, a 9000-acre plantation, which is managed primarily to enhance wild game habitat and forestry. This land will remain in its natural state because of a perpetual Conservation Easement in cooperation with the Suwannee River Water Management District. Forestry and ecological research are an integral part of Foundation plans.

The Continental Field Trial (as well as other trials) is conducted on Dixie Plantation for the promotion of knowledge concerning quail hunting dogs as well as public enjoyment of this time-honored event. The Continental is one of the longest running field trials in the United States and has been held on Dixie Plantation grounds since 1937.

The main house on the property was designed by John Russell Pope and is considered an architectural show place. The Foundation is currently in the process of raising funds for its restoration as well as implementing measures for having it placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Foundation supports and encourages education and research in the fields of forestry, agriculture, and ecology, through grants and cooperative research projects. Additionally the Foundation supports selected projects and local educational and charitable organizations.
