Direct Relief Featured in Money Magazine

The cover story showcases the organization as one just three chosen targets for a $10,000 gift

Direct Relief International is included in the November issue of a major national financial publication, Money magazine, in the cover article titled, “What to Do with $10,000.”

While most of the suggestions are focused on investment opportunities, “Charity: Help on an Even Larger Scale” showcases Direct Relief International as one just three chosen targets for a $10,000 gift, to provide medical supplies for 800 victims of the next potential Gulf Coast hurricane.

Through its Direct Relief USA program, Direct Relief supports more than 1,000 community “safety net” clinics in 50 states (including programs in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties) and is the nation’s first nonprofit recipient of Verified Accredited Wholesale Distributor certification from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy.

Direct Relief was also recently ranked as California’s largest international relief organization in the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s annual Philanthropy 400 list, and among the 2009 Top 100 Nonprofits according to The NonProfit Times magazine.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
