Billionaires giving their fortunes away

Not every billionaire is a Scrooge—just think of Andrew Carnegie or Bill Gates. And while some of the 1% still aren't prepared to part with chunks of their massive wealth, there is a growing rank of the richest people in the world who are.

Wealth-X—a wealth intelligence firm—has just released a list of billionaire philanthropists from around the globe who are bound to be the next legendary givers to rival even Carnegie or Gates.

These charitable tycoons come from all different industries, including oil, retail, manufacturing, banking, real estate, and pharmaceuticals. They also hail from all around the globe, and together have a net worth just shy of $70 billion.
