A group of twelve of the wealthiest individuals in the world congregated in the magnificent Trustees Room at New York Public Library, making for what is likely the wealthiest gathering of all-time.


The twelve – Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, Bill and Melinda Gates, Pete Petersen, Leon Black, Jon Bon Jovi, Marc Benioff, David Rubenstein, Steve Case, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen and Marc Andreessen – made their vast fortunes in different ways, but all have joined together in order to give away large portions of their fortunes for philanthropic purposes.


Their combined net worth? A staggering $126 billion.

They should be able to do a lot of good with that money.
