Generous Quotes A-Z by Author
To me, money is a means to do good. I reached
a point in my life where I had enjoyed tremendous
business success that afforded my family
everything we could possibly want. My wife
and I then decided that we could use our
wealth to make a difference. So we created
the Broad Foundations to do four things:
to improve urban public education, to support
innovative scientific and medical research,
to foster art appreciation for audiences
worldwide and to support civic initiatives
in Los Angeles.
Broad - Money

under pseudonyms, and planting trees on
it. All the money is going into it when
I die.. and in the end I'd like to think
that it will be 20 to 30,000 acres.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet
as if they were going to be dead by midnight.

rich to achieve your potential.

Sabanci - Happiness
Princeton has made an enormous difference
in my life, and I am delighted to be able
to express my gratitude in such a tangible
way. The generosity of earlier generations
of donors made it possible for me to attend
Princeton as a young student from Hong Kong,
and I have always wanted to do all I could
to assure that students in the future..
from the United States and around the world..
will have the same kinds of opportunities
I had to learn from faculty members who
are leaders in their fields at a university
that remains second to none in its commitment
to teaching. (talking about his $100 million
donation to Princeton University)
Wu - Philanthropy
