Portfolio Monkey is a social venture whose mission is to educate and to provide self-directed investors with the most simple-to-use and sophisticated investment and portfolio management tools available.
What do you mean by social venture?
Our primary purpose is to serve as a “public good” for the benefit of our user community. In some respects, we operate similarly to a non-commercial enterprise. We don’t make money from subscription fees, advertising, or lead generation. We don’t sell your private information to third party marketers.
All of our services are 100% free and they will remain that way forever as long as we can sustain it.
Portfolio Monkey is a labor of love from its creators and contributors. We are driven not by profit (we all have day jobs that pay the bills) but by the satisfaction we get from our users who express their appreciation for the work we do. This is simply our small little way of giving back to the community that supports us.
If you don’t make money, how do you sustain your cost of operations?
We hope to be able to fund our operations through user donations. To the extent donations exceed our cost of hosting and maintaining the site, we will reinvest all proceeds into making the site better for its users. This includes enhancing product functionality and developing new features as suggested by our user community.
Should I donate to Portfolio Monkey?
Yes, if you believe in what we're doing, if you have gained value from using Portfolio Monkey, and if you want to be involved in help building the best free service out there, please support us by making a financial contribution via the “Donate” button above.
How much should I donate and how often?
That’s entirely up to you. Donate any amount you wish, that you’re comfortable with, that lets us know you appreciate the work we’re doing.
As for how often, donate when you feel Portfolio Monkey has done a good job for you, when it’s made or saved you money, or even helped you gain valuable insight into your portfolio.
Portfolio Monkey can go only as far as our user donations can take us, so your contribution matters.
What else can I do to help?
