Motley Fool Selects Ashoka as
One of Five for National Charity Drive
Drive Ends January 6, 2002
Washington, D.C., November 21 - For the second consecutive year, The Motley Fool, the world's leading Internet financial education company, has selected Ashoka for its annual Foolanthropy Charity Drive.
"Last year we were honored to be selected by The Motley Fool for its annual Foolanthropy Drive," said Erin Bilbray, Ashoka's Development Director. "Ashoka was able to raise over $150,000 through the drive. Being chosen a second time is more than we could have anticipated or hoped for."
The company invites its members to nominate the charities to which they would like to contribute. The criteria? To educate, be transparent, sustainable, non-paternalistic, and 'epic in grandeur of mission.'
Since 1997, The Motley Fool and its community have raised close to two million dollars for many charities across the nation. Ashoka is among five organizations chosen for their unusual, fascinating, and effective work. "We love what these organizations do and how they do it" said Selena Maranjian of Motley Fool. The drive is open to all and not restricted to Motley Fool members.
