DVS Foundation: our newest corporate member
The DVS Foundation have recently joined TFN as corporate members, and we're really excited to have them! Read on for their perspective on our events and giving model.
DVS Foundation is a family foundation based in London. The Foundation was set-up in 2012 by Dhiru V Shah and his wife Rami Shah to formalise their family's philanthropy. The Foundation’s work is broadly focused in food, education and healthcare. Within these areas, they provide grants and also run their own programmes.
Priyan Shah, Trustee of the Foundation said:
“We found out about The Funding Network through another funder and after attending a few of the in-person events last year, we decided to join as a corporate member.
As a Foundation, we are currently evaluating our funding priorities so the TFN events are a great way for us to gain exposure to different causes. It can also be challenging for us to find, assess and directly work with smaller grassroot organisations so leveraging TFN’s model enables us to channel our funds more effectively.
We also like exploring different ways of giving and the TFN’s ‘auction style’ events are a fun and unique approach to pooling funds. These events are also accessible to the public, providing anyone a chance to learn and give in a non-traditional way. As funders, we often work in isolation, so having an opportunity to network and meet other donors is invaluable.”
