New Matching Funds Available

Thanks to you, $10,000 in matching funds have increased the total donation for SELF by another $25,000 in 4 days.  We deeply regret that donors whose monies came in late were not be matched, because the matching fund has run out.  Click here to see the great progress in SELF.

New Matching funds of $5,300 Available!

Another $5,300 is available effective today. I donated $2,800 personally. Shannon Tang, Lexington, MA donated the remaining $2,500.

Please respond early to make sure that your donation will be matched.  Your fund will benefit our community all the same, whether matched or not!

Shannon Tang's donation was raised by Prof. Larry Ho and his wife, Sophia, who themselves have committed to donate $4,800 per year for 5 years.

Larry Yu-Chi Ho 
- another of Our Best and Brightest

Have you ever heard of a professor who retired with TWO named Chairs? :-)
Well, Prof. Ho, a founder of 80-20, holds such an honor from Harvard, no less.  He holds the title of Gordon McKay Professor of Systems Engineering, Emeritus, and the T. Jefferson Coolidge Chair of Applied Mathematics, Emeritus.  Besides numerous awards, he is also a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.  

Larry cares greatly for our community, unlike some who have "made it."  80-20 likes to use this opportunity to salute another one of our community's best and the brightest.
