Founded in 1993 by brothers Tom and David Gardner, The Motley Fool helps millions of people attain financial freedom through their website, podcasts, books, newspaper column, radio show, and premium investing services. On June 20, a Motley Fool article on choosing nonprofits worth donating to featured NORD, along with the American Cancer Society and the Healthwell Foundation.
Some highlights of the NORD write-up:
“For patients with diseases so uncommon that their prevalence in the population isn’t even known, like Achard-Thiers syndrome, NORD’s Rare Disease Database is a lifeline of information and clinical trial recruitment activity… NORD is rated a perfect 100 out of 100 for both financial efficiency and financial transparency by Charity Navigator, an accomplishment only a small handful of nonprofits achieve.”
