Chronicle of Philanthropy released much-ballyhooed "Philanthropy 50," and Californians claim 15 of those spots, with nearly $3b in gifts.
"Fifteen of this year’s top 50 donors live in California, collectively contributing $2.8 billion. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, topped the donor chart with their $992 million in charitable gifts. No. 2 was Charles Johnson, a principal owner of the San Francisco Giants, who dropped $250 million. At 28, Chan was the youngest donor on the list. The oldest was 90-year-old billionaire Charles Munger, Warren Buffet’s [sic] right-hand man." -- SeattlePi.com
