Giving Pledge

The Giving Pledge is a commitment by the world's wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to giving back.

The Giving Pledge is an effort to help address society’s most pressing problems by inviting the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to commit more than half of their wealth to philanthropy or charitable causes either during their lifetime or in their will.

In August 2010, 40 of America’s wealthiest individuals and couples joined together in a commitment to give more than half of their wealth away. Created by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett, the Giving Pledge came to life following a series of conversations with philanthropists around the world about how they could collectively set a new standard of generosity among the ultra-wealthy.

As of 2019, only 189 pledges have taken Giving Pledge.
The reasons can be many like
1) Rich are not sure whether they should give large part of the money they have earned or inherited
2) Mental attitude of human beings
3) Ego (Lets admit that whether one is rich or poor, EGO is many times the culprit)
4) They are not sure where to give money & Impact of their giving

CSRidentity.com knows very well that there are hardly few thousand individuals & families who are economically billionaires but it also knows that most of the individuals on earth have 80 to 100 billion neurons which means they are billionaires in terms of the number of neurons.

If all people give 2% of their money & time to disabled (We call it differently abled) or senior citizens or below the poverty line citizens or locals or to environment initiatives like climate initiatives or on social issues like those for water, agriculture ....or donate blood, household products, computers ... world will be a far greater place to live & leave.


Individuals & families who have taken The Giving Pledge
Names shared by surname, so Warrn Buffett will be in B, Bill & Melinda Gates are in G.
Reason is because many couples are Giving Pledgers & there are some families. So whether wife first or husband first may become an issue like Melinda Gates first or Bill Gates first. So we have decided that Gates first.
