On December 21st, the Giving Pledge announced that 13 philanthropists have joined the Giving Pledge since May 2019, bringing the total number of signatories to 216 from 24 countries.
Now in its 10th year, the Giving Pledge is a global, multi-generational commitment by some of the world’s wealthiest individuals and couples to give a majority of their wealth to philanthropy or charitable causes, either during their lifetimes or in their wills. It aims to create a movement that will help change the norms around wealth and giving on a global scale.
Bill Gross is among the new signatories to the Giving Pledge.
Sharing is always an evolving feature of a healthy society, both with maturing children and aging adults. While initially resisting requests to join the Giving Pledge Community, I have evolved/aged to now join a magnificent group of fellow pledgees! While I have over several decades established a $400 million foundation and funded nearly $300 million of additional philanthropic pledges I have recently changed my will to provide for over 50% of my assets to philanthropic foundations of my two children Jeff and Jennifer Stengaard Gross.Bill Gross
Thank you for the opportunity to share even more by joining the Giving Pledge Community!
