Warren Buffett is giving away some more money.

 

Of course, he has plenty to give away.

 

He’s worth an estimated 100 billion dollars.

 

He’s donating about 4 percent of that, 4.1 billion dollars to five foundations.  

 

The money is coming from Berkshire Hathaway shares Buffett owns.

 

Buffett is also resigning as a trustee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  

 

Buffett’s goal before he dies is to give away all his Berkshire Hathaway stock, and he says he is halfway to his goal.

 

He’s also 90 years old, in a country where the typical man lives to 75 years old.
