Mark Zukerberg gives half a billion dollars to Silicon Valley charity


quote:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is donating half a billion dollars in Facebook stock to a Silicon Valley charity in his largest donation to date. As reported by The Associated Press, the recipient is the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, which will decide, along with Zuckerberg, exactly how to dish out the cash. It has been said that the money will be used to focus on health and education issues.

The donation of 18 million shares had a closing price of $498.8 million on Tuesday, making it roughly five times the size of Zuckerberg’s 2010 donation to Newark, New Jersey’s public school system. Later the same year, Zuckerberg signed the Giving Pledge, an initiative engineered by Bill Gates asking the world’s richest to give away the majority of their fortunes.

If he was truly generous, he would've just donated a billion dollars.

That's great, but considering how much he has/will have, that's really not a lot.

He's probably a few inches deep into a mini coke mountain right now. Then he'll bang an OT 10 or two before hitting the bars.

Wonder how long they have to hold the stock, or if it will be spread out over 10-20 years.

No way he gave all the stock at once with no stipulations. Could harm his company if they sell it all tomorrow.

10-20 years that stock could be more of a burden than a gift.

exactly what I was thinking. They need to cash it out now before it's only worth $420M next week.

Usually there is an exit strategy, for example, 25M/Year.
Biggest problem is the charity has to plan the use of the funds, sounds like ole zuckey wants to make sure it's spent well. (Smart)
