Global Philanthropy Register 2008

Lifestyles Magazine‘s 2008 Global Philanthopy Register demonstrates that the world’s wealthiest individuals are still giving away large sums of money—despite the recent market downturn. The even-better news is that 66 new individuals have been added to our list of 412. These remarkable people have gained this level of success as ultra-shrewd investors and money managers, through untapped opportunities in markets like Russia and Eastern Europe and of course, through the ever-evoling world of technology and the Internet.
