Top Generous Philanthropists

I have listed a few generous Philanthropists below. The list is not conclusive. There are many more generous Philanthropists in the world today. Some are billionaires and millionaires, but there are tens of millions more who are not, yet they are great givers.


 

Because there are so many great givers in the world today, it would be very challenging for me to list all the them in this article.



However, I have started the list with a few of the popular ones we know of, but I will continue to add to this list, ever so often.
