As a long-short equity portfolio manager at Kellner Capital, LLC, in New York City, Louis Gregory Rice conducts research on various industries and invests in global equities. Louis Gregory Rice also contributes to his community by supporting nonprofit organizations like the Robin Hood Foundation, which funds programs that address poverty in New York City.
In a recent press release, Robin Hood announced that it was the beneficiary of a fund-raising campaign led by students at the Dalton School. First-grade students at the school participated in the annual Little Dalton Post Office, a fund-raiser in which the children create and sell mail-related items that can be used for a month of interschool communications.
By selling stamps, envelops, and postcards for a dime, the students were able to raise more than $1,200, a sum they chose to donate to the Robin Hood Foundation. The students selected Robin Hood after using online research tool Charity Navigator to investigate organizations that provide resources to New Yorkers. By donating to Robin Hood, the Dalton School students were able to help furnish food, housing, and employment services to individuals in their community.
