MARYLAND — For many of the world’s richest people, philanthropy is a way to get by, to give back, and to provide a sense of belonging.
In the United States, the Gates family has become synonymous with the philanthropy of its founder, Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist.
But for Melinda, a wealthy former hedge fund manager, it has become a way of life.
After her first husband, Bill, died of breast cancer in 2005, she began taking time to think deeply about the lives of her family and the world around her.
Her focus on global health and the environment, as well as her commitment to the cause of women’s empowerment and empowerment for all, are among the many reasons why she has been named the second-most influential person in the world by Forbes magazine.
Melinda has become the most powerful person in Africa, the world of technology, and global finance, and her personal and charitable efforts have made a significant impact on the lives and well-being of millions.
