Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) December 6, 2007
NuWire Investor, an online financial news publication, recently published its list of the Top 15 Charities for Investors for 2007. The charities were selected based on their effectiveness in using donations to the fullest and their ability to provide to donors tangible examples of how far an investment will go.
Several charities on the list were microfinance groups that support entrepreneurship and innovation in impoverished communities and countries. Each of these charities had an individual approach and philosophy of how to best accomplish long-term, sustainable success and fiscal responsibility among loan recipients. Other charities on the list focused on fair trade, which allows already viable local industries to thrive and expand.
A donation to any of the 15 charities empowers impoverished recipients to be self-sustaining and profitable over time. In a sense, the donation's value will appreciate over time, which is a principle that investors can truly appreciate.
The Top 15 Charities for Investors in 2007 are:
2. Pura Vida Coffee
3. Root Capital
4. Calvert Foundation
8. New Community Corporation
9. Nonprofit Finance Fund
10. Pioneer Human Services
11. Scojo Foundation
12. Housing Partnership Network
13. Grameen Foundation
14. Rubicon Programs
