The Giving Pledge

The Giving Pledge is a campaign to encourage extremely wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes. As of May 2019, the pledge has 204 signatories, either individuals or couples, from 22 countries, though some of the signers have died since signing.[1] Most of the signatories of the pledge are billionaires, and their pledges total over $500 billion. It does not actually dictate that the money will be spent in any certain way or towards any particular charity or cause, and there is no legal obligation.

DescriptionEdit

The organization's stated goal is to inspire the wealthy people of the world to give at least half of their net worth to philanthropy, either during their lifetime or upon their death. The pledge is a public gesture of an intention to give, not a legal contract.[2] On The Giving Pledge's website, each individual or couple writes a letter explaining why they chose to give.

HistoryEdit

In June 2010, the Giving Pledge campaign was formally announced and Bill Gates and Warren Buffett began recruiting members.[3] As of August 2010, the aggregate wealth of the first 40 pledgers was $125 billion.[4] As of April 2011, 69 billionaires had joined the campaign and given a pledge,[5] and by the following year, The Huffington Post reported that a total of 81 billionaires had pledged.[6] By May 2017, 158 individuals and/or couples were listed as pledgers.[7][8] Not all pledgers are billionaires.

SignatoriesEdit

At least $500 billion of giving has been pledged by 204 individuals or couples, with a combined 2017 net worth of $1 trillion. Below is a list of all net worth amounts (pledges are not shown):[9]
