And the Heaviest Hitter is...


In the last post, we asked: "Who was this year’s biggest donor?"

Well, the answer is...drum roll please…Warren Buffett who donated $3.1 billion to a few different non-profit organizations including his very own Howard G. Buffett Foundation, NoVo Foundation and the Sherwood Foundation.
In second place, is a little known couple, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, who gave just under half a million dollars.
