Remembering Charles F. Feeney

1931 - 2023

Chuck Feeney was truly one of a kind among billion-dollar philanthropists. No one in that category – certainly including me – except Chuck has given away sums which required that they change their own personal living standard. Chuck basically gave it all while he had years left to live. This record may live for a long time as should our memory for him.

– Warren Buffett
