BOSTON — Women’s erotica and sexuality website Sssh.com has announced that its subscriber community selected The Michael J. Fox Foundation for the organization’s philanthropic donation program for the month of May.
The website will donate a percentage of its monthly revenue to the cause that is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.
Sssh.com said it takes time and consideration that each organization is chosen based on a commitment to excellence, accomplishment of stated goals and ratio of funds distribution (direct application to the cause vs. administrative expense).
The list of potential beneficiaries includes social, medical and environmental charities that get little attention and deserve so much more. Some are large associations known for touching lives in positive ways. Others are small but cutting-edge research foundations determined to cure debilitating diseases. Still others are cultural and community outreach programs devoted to enriching lives.
Bucking the accepted practice of using external scientific advisors and boards to decide on how to allocate resources, The Michael J. Fox Foundation relies on an in-house team of formally trained PhDs and business-trained project managers.
Sssh.com said its members will select each month’s beneficiary — giving women a voice in ensuring dollars go where they will do the most good.
Each month’s beneficiary will be announced at the beginning of the following month. Organizations and foundations that would like to be included may email email@example.com.
