The Motley Fool was founded in 1993 by brothers David and Tom Gardner. Our name derives from Shakespeare's play "As You Like It," where only the court jester - the "Fool" - could tell the King the truth without getting his head lopped off. If you haven’t yet noticed, we lovingly call our employees Fools - with a capital “F.” Our global band of Fools helps millions of people attain financial freedom through our website, podcasts, books, radio show, mutual funds, and premium investing services. We're dedicated to educating, amusing, and enriching individuals in search of the truth.

Mission: To help the world invest - better.

We're foregoing our annual tradition of an April Fools' Day joke for something different this year (but it's just as Foolish).

No doubt many of you are excited to see what our joke is this year, but this April 1st, we have a more important message for you, our Foolish community.

Nearly half of all U.S. coronavirus cases are in New York state and, as Gov. Cuomo said, right now, New York is the canary in the coal mine for our entire country.

After consulting with the governor’s office for guidance on how we all can be most useful, The Motley Fool is donating $1 million to New York state’s COVID-19 response fund to reach the front lines of this pandemic.

We invite you to join us this April Fools’ Day by contributing to the COVID-19 response in New York at donate.fool.com or by supporting an organization in your community.

If you'd like to share your stories with us, please comment on this post to encourage each other during these tough times. By doing our part as Fools worldwide, we can make a difference today.

Stay safe, stay inside, and stay Foolish.

To keep up with our higher (or should we say hire?) pace of recruiting, The Motley Fool is transitioning to HIPster, a new recruiting platform created internally. Effective immediately (like right now), the Foolish Recruiting Team will be using a proprietary algorithm embedded within HIPster to evaluate qualified candidates in a more effective, and almost perfect, manner of hiring.
