We understand that a philanthropist may use any vehicle which suits him/her most to achieve his/her philanthropic objectives. That way you may not feel the need to join one more non-profit organization like TF. However we believe that joining TF will still be a good idea. Because that way experience and learning can be shared across organizations with similar objectives. This actually fits very well to one of TF's focus area which is to exchange idea, information, knowledge for mutual benefit and benefit of society (with a focus on Tripura) in general. If similar-objective organizations, or their constituents, contact and communicate well it will also help to prioritize their limited resources. Moreover, there is no obligation that a TF-ian has to spend a minimum amount of time for TF or to contribute a minimum amount of money to TF. At the same time TF is a social network of successful professionals spread over all over the world. So a TF-ian will benefit from interacting with diverse field of people and enrich others by sharing. In reality there can't be anything but a gain in exposure, satisfaction from doing social work, by joining TF.
