Let's Have The Ultimate Hat Tip Competition

This probably won't happen, but Sleepy can still dream.

Dear ALS Organizations,

We're having a contest for you.  

A mystery donor has recently won $1,000,000 to invest in the fight against ALS.  Your help is needed in designing a diversified portfolio for that donor.  Here are the rules:
  • Design a portfolio of recipients of the entire $1 million that will best serve the battle against ALS.
  • Your organization may receive up to half of the funds.
  • You must pick four other IRS-recognized charities to be recipients of the remaining funds.
  • If yours is an umbrella organization, the four others may not be under your umbrella.
The spirit of this contest is to recognize that there are a lot of good organizations that can complement one another in the fight against ALS.  There are different research organizations.  There are social service organizations.  There are advocacy organizations.  There is so much to be done in the fight against ALS that one organization can't do it all.  There is so much to be done in research that a single approach surely isn't a wise investment.

Please design and enlighten us.

Think of it as the ultimate hat tip.
