Tom Gardner and David Gardner announce the Fool Foundation

Over the past 30 years, The Motley Fool has sought to enable investment in many great companies that have changed the world for the better, helping us achieve The Motley Fool’s goal of making the world smarter, happier and richer.

However, after focusing on people who have the capital to invest, about two-thirds of Americans who don’t again have this capital, in part because of the inequitable access to our financial, education, health and housing systems, as well as many other barriers to wealth creation that exist today. We think that needs to change.

As Ffounders of The Motley Fool, we are delighted to announce the launch of The Motley Fool Foundation and its bold vision: financial Freserve for All. Yes, we are launching our Foundation, a public charity, on April Fool’s Day. The day nearly three decades ago that put The Fool on the map. But this is no joke.

That certain communities have been and are being marginalized and denied equal access is anti-market, anti-growth and contrary to everything we at The Motley Fool believe.

The world and markets work best when opportunities for growth, impact and prosperity are clearly accessible to all.

So it’s time to pay it and investing in financial freedom for all.

Now is the time to invest in the world you want to see.
