Eye on the Giving Pledge

Since 2010, 190 of the world's wealthiest individuals and families have joined the Giving Pledge, publicly declaring their intentions to commit the majority of their assets to philanthropic causes. Glasspockets is keeping an Eye on the Giving Pledge, providing an in-depth picture of the participants and their publicly-known charitable activities.
