How the Wealthy Use Their Charitable Foundations for GoodThe Microsoft co-founder is well-known as the richest man in the world but he’s also considered the most generous. Gates has tuned over leadership at Microsoft to others and he now focuses most of his time on the foundation he created with his wife, Melinda Gates. To date, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has donated more than $27 billion to different programs and organizations to help fight global hunger and offer emergency relief, as well as education and health improvements, among other things.
