Is there a place in the John Templeton Foundation for the American Cancer Society?
John Templeton was born in 1912 in Tennessee. He worked his way through Yale, some say by playing poker and winning.. He won on Wall Street too in 1939 by buying 100 shares of 104 companies selling at a $1 or less. He turned a large profit in an average of 4 years.
Named the greatest global stock picker of the 20th century by Money Magazine, in 1992 he sold his various Templeton mutual funds for $440 Million .
The Foundation based in Pennsylvania gives away about $40 million a year. Sir John, at 92 is still active with the Foundation. Can the American Cancer Society find a topic that would interest Mr. Templeton? It is worth a try.
