At the Give Back Promise, we aim to inspire others to action with philanthropy. We hope that by making a public declaration to give away the majority of their wealth to philanthropy, the world's millionaires and multi-millionaires will inspire conversations and the actions of others to give. The Give Back Promise is about a commitment, a giving commitment that's made public by each person making the promise. Our motto is "live your legacy, leave your legacy", which means those that make the promise have a sense of duty to give back and want to make their giving intentions known to their families, their communities, their employees and others. The idea takes its inspiration from the Giving Pledge, started by Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, to encourage the world's billionaires to give.
LIVE YOUR LEGACY. LEAVE YOUR LEGACY.
Empty stomachs hurt. They break the human spirit and make the future seem impossible. Giving food is essential to creating health.
“If you teach a man to fish...” Education gives everyone the tools they need to succeed through their lives and to change the world.
To do great work, you need tools. While blood, sweat and tears have built empires, charities still need supplies to carry out their mission.
Private foundations provide permanence. A foundation can consistently fund a cause and provide years of benefits.
