The Matthew Siegal Goodworx™ Foundation (www.matthewsiegal.com), a Potomac, Maryland-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization funded by serial entrepreneur and investor Matt Siegal, today announced a $20,000 donation to the Elton John AIDS Foundation (www.ejaf.org).
“Since 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has been at the vanguard of organizations that provide funding for AIDS treatment, care and awareness, and the promoting of human rights for people living with HIV throughout the world,” said Matt Siegal. “While much progress has been made to eradicate AIDS in the 28 years since the Elton John AIDS Foundation was launched, the fight isn’t over. It’s gratifying to be able to support EJAF’s continuing mission.”
The formal announcement of the donation was made by Matt Siegal on New Year’s Eve at the W Hotel in Washington, DC, before an audience of 200 invited guests at Siegal’s launch party for his latest tech venture, Transformania LLC (www.transformania.com).
