Ellison Donates $100 million


Larry Ellison, billionaire CEO of Oracle Corporation, has recently agreed to donate $100 million to charities.  The donation is part of a settlement recently approved by a California judge.  Ellison will have up to 90 days to identify the recipient of the donation and will have up to 5 years to make the donation.  Sounds like a win-win situation for Larry and the charities.


I trackbacked your post on the feather blog, with this response:

I know of a few good 501(c)3 charities Ellison could donate to:

Apache Software Foundation
Mozilla Foundation
Open Source Initiative
Open Source Applications Foundation
Python Software Foundation
Electronic Frontier Foundation

I think it would be deliciously ironic and apropos. =)
