A cornerstone is a component of the foundation of a building that determines the standing of the entire structure. Similarly, The Cornerstone Fund will uphold the momentum that DFN has experienced since its founding in 2002. These necessary funds will support the infrastructure that keeps the DFN office operating efficiently so that we can increase our impact in India. Gifts to The Cornerstone Fund will also be used for capacity building, development initiatives, and organizational expansion. The metaphor of the cornerstone reminds us that the fortitude of The Cornerstone Fund is proportional to the overall fiscal and giving ability of the organization.
