The billionaire who wanted to die broke was left without wealth

In the last 40 years, Chuck Fini has donated as much as eight billion dollars

Charles Chuck Feeney, a former billionaire and co-founder of retail giant Duty-Free Shoppers, has donated all of his fortunes to charity.

He lived modestly

Fini made billions by founding Duty-Free Shoppers along with Robert Miller but lived a fairly modest life. He was known as a great philanthropist and often donated his money to charity, and he was a great proponent of the so-called idea of ​​Giving while living.

– We learned a lot and I am very pleased that we managed to achieve that. Thanks to everyone who was a part of this trip. And those wondering about the idea of ​​Giving while living: “Try it, you’ll like it,” Fini told Forbes.

In the last 40 years, Fini has donated more than eight billion dollars to charities and universities through his organization “The Atlantic Philanthropies” anonymously.

Secret action

He officially closed the organization on September 14 after fulfilling his long-standing mission. He told Forbes that he had set aside about two million dollars for his wife and himself, for retirement.

While many wealthy philanthropists brag in the media about their donations, Fini was determined to keep his donations a secret, something Forbes called him James Bond of philanthropy.

Inspired others

He also inspired Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, who founded Giving Pledge in 2010. It is a campaign aimed at convincing the richest individuals in the world to donate at least half of their wealth before their death.
