 Jennifer Buffett leads may not rank among the largest foundations in the U.S., but it is one of the biggest family foundations led by a woman and it gives at a very substantial level: $56.7 million in grants in 2012,

placing it in the 100 largest foundations by giving. And it’s only up from there, given that Warren Buffett has pledged shares of Berkshire Hathaway stock to NoVo that will ultimately total several billion dollars.

 She’s also been a smart and innovative funder, leading NoVo into issues where its resources could make a big difference, like violence against girls and women, sex trafficking, and Social and Emotional Learning, an education approach that stands in refreshing contrast to the business-like focus on metrics and accountability that’s so fashionable in philanthropy.


 David and Lucille Packard Foundation is a giant, giving out $253 million in 2012. And it’s a giant that has been closely molded and guided by Carol Larson, who has been a central figure at the foundation since 1995 and its president since 2004.

She continued to advance in the foundation until she was the obvious choice to be president. Packard’s biggest move since Larson took over has been a historic $500 million commitment to mitigating climate change, funding that has helped transform the climate sector. So it’s hard to pinpoint who really is calling the shots at Packard. Still, we can’t think of another top legacy foundation that has been so dominated by a woman executive.


A long with her hedge funder husband Bill Ackman, Karen Ackman oversees the Pershing Square Foundation, one of the more sophisticated funding operations to emerge from the finance world recently. With an eye on catalyzing systemic change, it’s been giving big for human rights, immigrant college students, criminal justice reform, global development, and more. A landscape architect, Karen sits on the board of New York’s High Line public park, which Ackman money helped build; and Human Rights Watch, which has received major gifts from the couple.

  1. I’m sorry. All i’m explaining is the truth. I’m only living with my mom, she’s not okay because she got an accident so she’s just always on bed. My dad divorced her and left us since i was young. The life we’re having is for borrowing salt, some food so that we can eat. The owner of the house needs us to pay rent which we’ve not paid it’s 3 years now; I believe that you’ll understand the pain we’re into. Please open your heart and give us your hand. Please feel the pain we’re having. Since my mom got an accident and lost her job, she also lost her memories; no one is with us, Even her own sister decided to leave her. I couldn’t be able finishing my studies in the past years because alot of worse and hard times happened in our family and mom couldn’t be able to afford that could led me to accomplish my studies so I decided to search any street job that could atleast help us having something to eat. The cash i was paid it couldn’t help my mom for medication nor paying rent, even the food we were getting wasn’t enough for us. I sometimes just decide to pretend to my mom that i’m satisfied and don’t feel eating just so that she can eat all of it so that she gets satisfied. Please i need your help so it can push us a better level step. I’ve decided to borrow this phone to log in so as to pass you this message. Please make this day a lucky one for us
