Zuckerberg and Wife: 2013's Biggest Charitable Gift
The responsible for the largest on-record charitable donation in the United States in 2013 were Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan.
Zuckerberg, along with wife, Priscilla Chan, contributed the sum to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation including 18 million in Facebook shares that totaled to about 992 million dollars.
According to Newsmax, Zuckerberg is joined by 14 other big ticket donors in the US, including outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and businessman and political activist David Koch, who were among those giving away at least 100 million dollars of their fortunes at one time.
The Chronicle of Philanthropy released its annual charitable giving list in which Zuckerberg featured as the first person aged under 30 years of age to top the list of biggest donors.Source: Daily News & Analysis
