Buffett was one of just three trustees at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Warren Buffett announced Wednesday that he is donating another $4.1 billion to philanthropic organizations and is stepping down as trustee at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Buffett’s latest distribution of wealth is part of a pledge he made in 2006 to give away all of the shares he owns in Berkshire Hathaway, the Nebraska-based conglomerate he has helmed since 1970. His Berkshire Hathaway shares comprise some 99% of his net worth and Buffet said he is “halfway there” in donating the majority of his wealth.
