It was reported that the billionaire Chuck Feeney gave away more than 99% of his $6.3 billion. The money is set to help underprivileged children so they can go to college.
The 81-year-old Chuck Feeney is being described as “the James Bond of philanthropy”. Feeney has circled the world helping people all over the globe. “Atlantic Philanthropies”, his foundation, has given $6.2 billion to health care, science, education and civil rights to many countries including Ireland, USA, Vietnam and a few in Africa.
He’s now worth approximately $2 million, but by the looks of it, he won’t be enjoying the money much longer. In 2016 “Atlantic Philanthropies” will spend another $1.3 billion and by 2020 the foundation will be shuttered.
