Good People Fund

Last year, I blogged about the closing of the Ziv Tzedakah Fund, and I received a letter from one of the people involved insuring that the legacy of the fund would continue.

Well now I received the following notice about the creation of Ziv’s offspring, the Good People Fund:

We are proud to announce the creation of The Good People Fund. We hope it will help to fill the void created when the Ziv Tzedakah Fund closed at the end of March, and that it will build upon Ziv’s legacy. The fund’s founders and initial donors were strongly committed to Ziv’s mission and believe that the essence of its good work should continue to help, educate and inspire others.

The Good People Fund, Inc. is committed to supporting small, grass-roots endeavors that are making a difference in people’s lives, and to providing educational resources that will show many ways individuals of all means can truly make a difference. We will do so with a minimum of bureaucracy and with the greatest transparency.(MORE)
