Our Vision

We established the William Fox, Jr. Foundation in 1991

William Fox
William Fox founded Fox Film Corporation In 1915, which later became Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation. He revolutionized the industry by combining production, distribution, and exhibition into a single entity. William Fox was an innovator who pioneered widescreen movie projection and acquired the North American patents for sound-on-film technology known as Movietone. His vision was to use film with sound as an educational tool.

William Fox Jr.
William Fox, Jr., Fox Film Corporation founder’s grandson, is the individual whose name this Foundation commemorates. His grandfather taught him and from whom he inherited a pioneering spirit. Fox Jr. emphatically believed that visual images, media, and the performing arts were essential tools in education and other fields. He was particularly interested in using new technologies to improve access to education, healthcare, and the arts. He believed that this would be instrumental in reducing poverty and promoting progress. Sadly, William Fox, Jr. passed away in 1986 due to lung cancer.

Our Vision & Values
The Fox Family established this Foundation to honor William Fox Jr.’s legacy. It strives to implement William Fox Jr.’s visions and beliefs. The Foundation believes that integrating new technologies in education, healthcare, and all endeavors must be encouraged, as visual images and media can be practical tools for learning. By implementing these visions, the Foundation aims to create an improved future for all.
