Where does the name Matthew 25 come from?
The Matthew 25 Fund is named after the gospel Matthew 25 from The Bible. The Matthew 25 Fund does not consider itself a religious or socially conscious fund. Mark Mulholland started the Fund in 1995 and believed then and believes now that the information contained in the gospel has significance for day-to-day living. Matthew 25 contains three parables, and Mr. Mulholland believes that these parables tell us to be prepared, do your duty, and remember that it does matter how you treat people.
