Over the past several years this topic has popped up in many discussions that I’ve heard and overheard, essentially because Esri is privately owned with CEO Jack Dangermond steadily climbing on the Forbes List of wealthy Amerians.

The Giving Pledge is a multi-generational, global initiative created by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates that encourages billionaires to give the majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes. [Read more…] about Dangermond Family Pledges to donate Bulk of Wealth to Philanthropy Group
