They Gave it All Away

These millionaires forfeited fortunes to help others:

Karen Pittelman used a $3 million inheritance to establish the Chahara Foundation, which supports radical grassroots nonprofits run by and for low-income women in the greater Boston area. She now works for Resource Generation, which assists wealthy young adults in giving money to combat social problems.

Jessie O'Neill launched the Affluenza Project, which helps people cope with a "dysfunctional relationship with wealth" by giving it away.

Zell Kravinsky gave away millions of dollars–and one of his kidneys to a complete stranger.

Harlow Fullwood Jr. started the Fullwood Foundation, which provides ivy league scholarships for underprivileged kids.
