Eye on the Giving Pledge

Even before signing on to the Giving Pledge, many of its participants were engaged in philanthropy in various ways, including through their own foundations. The Foundation Center has combined its own store of data with additional public information to compile profiles that outline the charitable activities of each of the 168 pledgers. You can also take a closer look at the larger trends in giving interests, geographic distribution, and industry focus among all the pledgers.
