According to a list prepared by EdelGive Foundation and Hurun Report, Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, the founder of the Tata Group has become the world’s biggest philanthropist in the last 100 years, with donations worth $102.4 billion. Tata is followed by Bill and Melinda Gates ($74.6 billion), Warren Buffett ($37.4 billion), George Soros ($34.8 billion) and J D Rockefeller ($26.8 billion). The list was released today to rank the world’s most generous individuals from the last century. The data for the report was derived from publicly available sources and in certain cases, directly shared by the foundations. The ranking is based on Total Philanthropic Value — calculated as the value of the assets adjusted for inflation along with the sum of gifts or distributions to date.
