About Dattels Family Foundation
Jennifer Dattels and her husband, the mining entrepreneur Stephen Dattels, together with their children Graham Dattels and David Dattels have committed to support charitable work in Canada and overseas. The Foundation, which was established in 2009, is intended to provide a focus for the family’s continued philanthropic programme and to provide a lasting source of funding for projects which align with the core values of the Dattels family. Graham Dattels works in the field of international development and has been responsible for administering aid programmes in Central America and Asia. David Dattels founded and is the CEO of a Toronto based hedge fund, NewGen Asset Management.
The strategic direction and funding policies of the Foundation remain with the Board of Directors which comprises three members of the Dattels family who assess funding opportunities as well as ensuring that the Foundation maintains high standards of Corporate Governance.
