About Us

FundStar is one of a family of “not for personal profit enterprises” founded by David Evans MBE. From humble London Dockland origins, but with the benefit of a great state education, David created a global business from scratch. His Grass Roots Group had billings of $1 billion per annum. At 68 and following a life-threatening illness, the enterprise was sold.

Since then and at 71, he is still creating new ventures, each with a social purpose – education, health, energy reduction and with Fundstar a way of creating much needed funds for every school who wants to join in. He has funded the entire system and the staff employed in helping the cause.

“Without the support of the teachers and lectures of my youth, my work success would have been impossible. Each enterprise has a great cause and is designed to continue when I am no longer here.”

Evans restless spirit and energy is still at work and he was made MBE for his corporate social responsibility work in 2008. This has spurred him on to turn even more attention to some of the broadest issues. In this case, how to help schools’ funds in these difficult times.

FundStar has been created with the help of some very important key players who are at the front and help in the background of major cards in financial services.

Thanks to all involved.
