About Ira Riklis Charity Blog

Ira Riklis Charity Blog
Charity is dear to Ira Riklis‘ heart. In a recent article by the Wall Street Journal, Ira mentions that he is in the “second stage” of Philanthropy. This Charity blog is to share the accomplishments of 501(c)3s with a much more broad audience. Ira Rilkis is a man who is not shy about giving. Riklis selflessly donates to charities around New York City. His donations are often made in such a way that, with the funds, the non-profit can help themselves succeed. With a sturdy plan and budget like his, Ira Riklis aims to help charities from their launch to the time when other benefactors will lend a helping hand. He has done this with The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty.

Upon moving to America, Meshulam Riklis had majored in Mathematics at the University of Ohio in 1940. He analysed the stocks at Piper Jaffray. Once owning significant stocks, he climbed the ladder and is seated as the founder of The Rapid-American Corporation.
