Good Sports: MOST GENEROUS INDIAN
Two years ago, Wipro’s billionaire founder Azim Premji became the first Indian to sign the Giving Pledge, joining Bill Gates’ and Warren Buffett’s initiative to get the world’s richest people to give most of their wealth to charity. Premji, who has a net worth of $16.5 billion, recently moved closer to keeping the pledge, giving an additional 18 percent of his stake in Wipro to his charitable trust and bringing the total allocated to charity to 39 percent (about Rs. 53,000 crore).
According to the Harun India Philanthropy List, Premji has been the “Most Generous Indian” for the last two years.
