America’s Biggest Donors

from The Chronicle of Philanthropy:

After a Frugal Year, 2011 May See a Jump in Top Donors’ Giving

The year 2010 brought a lot of talk of philanthropy by the super-rich – but not much giving.

Despite more than 50 billionaires announcing last year that they would ultimately devote at least half of their wealth to charity, few made big gifts in 2010.

Just 17 people on The Chronicle’s annual list of the 50 most-generous donors also appeared on Forbes magazine’s list of the 400 wealthiest Americans.
