There are many types of charity donors and they donate for a variety of reasons,some for publicity but many prefer to remain anonymous.
So because of this it is difficult to get a list of charity donors, and even more difficult to get a list of private charity donors.
A list of corporate charity donors is more feasible, but such a list is never going to be accurate.
This is list of UK corporate charity donors
- Lloyds Banking Group
- Goldman Sachs International
- Tesco plc
- Barclays PLC
- Vodafone Group plc
- BHP Billiton plc
- Santander UK
- Ecclesiastical Insurance Group plc
- HSBC Holdings plc
- Diageo plc
In the US, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and chief executive of Facebook, was the US’s biggest charity donor in 2013, according to a list of publicly-available donations.
Celebrities also rank highly on charity donations, combined, the 30 most generous celebrities donated nearly $64 million of their personal wealth to a variety of charities. Either for doing the good deed or simply for other reasons, these celebrities certainly cannot be accused of not giving generously.
