The Diamond Family Foundation (“DFF”) is a not-for-profit organisation that is privately funded by Bob Diamond and his family.
The foundation is led by his wife, Jennifer Diamond, who is President of DFF. DFF’s principal purpose is to make grants to organisations that provide access to outstanding educational opportunities for those who lack access in the US, UK, and Sub-Saharan Africa. DFF has a special focus on Africa, and supports organisations that span multiple countries on the continent. DFF supports these organisations because of their efforts in working to end the cycles of illiteracy, poverty, hunger, disease, and child labour that plague some in Africa.
Additionally, DFF supports organisations whose missions are to strengthen African governments’ capacity to deliver effective programs to the people through public services, infrastructure development, and job creation, and to promote strong political leadership.
