The Moguls

These thinkers put their money where their morality is. Facebook’s first president dedicated $250 million to curing cancer; not to be outdone, the website’s founder and his physician spouse stepped up with $3 billion geared toward wiping out disease—all of it—in the next century. Other generous global citizens put capital in the hands of African-American and Latino entrepreneurs, connecting them to high-growth markets; gave Arab women a vital forum in an Oprah-style talk show; boosted Aboriginal Australians’ visibility in TV comedies and dramas; and spread educational excellence to rural villages in India.
