Bequest to Sally Ann

By smithdm3 - Posted on 20 January 2004

Just reading on the Globe and Mail site, that an heir to the McDonald's fortune as bequested a huge sum of money to the Sally Ann. When I say huge, I mean huge. $1.5 Billion US. That's crazy, it's the largest ever gift to a charitable foundation.

It ranks 9th in largest ever in terms of gifts to non-profits. The largest which came from Microsoft founder Bill Gates to his own group, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. That was a gift of a paltry $6 Billion... Yikes... that's huge!

I certainly hope that more and more people give their huge fortunes to charity as they expire, let's not look at creating huge fortunes for the likes of the Paris Hilton's to squander away, let's do good with your money.
