DPEG in the Community

Our Mission

The DPEG Foundation was formed to mobilize funds to provide international assistance to underprivileged individuals in need of health, education, welfare and overall advancement, as well as to provide grants for charitable, religious, educational and scientific purposes. We strive to put a smile on the face of everyone we touch.

Our Values

The DPEG Foundation operates on three key tenets:


We endeavor to create a lasting impact by implementing our programs to function well after our investment through resources, training and education.


Our funds are distributed to the areas that need them the most, in order to create a more even global playing field for all.

Smart Philanthropy

Utilizing our directors’ decades of investment experience, our funds are allocated to projects we believe will generate the greatest ROI in the communities affected, sticking true to the Dhanani Private Equity Group’s pragmatic and successful approach to real estate investments.

In 2019, Dhanani Private Equity Group (DPEG) formed The DPEG Foundation to give back to non-profit organizations meaningful to both the company and their investor partners.

The DPEG Foundation proudly partners with brilliant organizations that push forward good causes to make a positive impact in our communities.
