The Bill and Melinda Gates FoundationJune 28th, 2006
What a month for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. First, Bill Gates announces he will step down from day-to-day operations at Microsoft in order to spend more time on foundation-related work. Then, out of the blue, Warren Buffet announces he will donate $31 billion (yes, billion with a ‘b’) to the foundation, doubling its assets. Let’s hope all this money does some real good in the world.
