whats the tax basis here--closing year-end market value times # of share? is so, how can he know the value of his donation in advance?
btw, awesome donation. hope it eventually finds its way to actually help someone(s). i think if it were me, id want to know exactly where it went. only way to do that is to set up his own charity, with himself as chairman, and personal approval required prior to fund distribution. 500 million would challenge the decision processes of a lot of charities.
I wondered why the headline was next to an old pic of Kim Kardashian-you KNOW that family only donates to themselves, by way of Kris's 'church'. Good for him!
sorry, put my response to you under chairman lkeys post. see it there.
That is very generous of Mark Zuckerberg eventhough it may be too early for him to be doing so because Facebook is still young and its future is still murky
my response to you was meant for kristy. sorry for any inconvenience, although it should not have been too much.
you noticed that did you? me too. wonder what it cost her to get the "hollywood gossip" site to put her picture next to that headline--also, interesting contacts she must have to know in advance that this post was coming out and that there was a photo op here.
what a total sleaze bag she is. to try to imply she would actually part with a penny of her money for anything other than herself. under the definition of sleaze in the dictionary is a picture of her. a BIG picture, that is. truly amazing that she and her family have the incredible following that they do--sad comment on what our society values.
Good for Mark, may he be an inspiring role model for older rich people to get off their assets and give back to a needful and deserving World.

Man u hear someone has money and u whore urself by asking for it...and by the way there are tons of single parent DADS out there too that bust their butt everyday without help from anyone so maybe that CUSTODY PROJECT shouldnt just be label for just MOTHERS.
So generous...no wait it's called a tax write off....rich people do this all the time to avoid taxes...
Don't embarrass yourself, Brain. Donating to charites doesn't help the rich "avoid taxes." They simply don't pay taxes on the amount they donated. (OAnd why should they?) But since he would have only have to give about $175 million of that to the IRS, it mean his ACTUAL loss was still $325 million...out of pocket.
Don't blame the rich because you are a life failure who is literally a burden to society, meaning the world would rather you be dead than exist. ESPECALLY your mother who is embarrassed to have even given birth to you
thanks for that!
good for Marky
Its nice, sure, but not how he got to where he is to be able to give that money. Most of the richest people wouldn't be rich if they had proper ethics, they are sharks that eat up anyone they can, like Microsoft.
Oh, Mark started making it big by selling your personal information you thought was private. What a wonderful person.
The richest man in the world, steals from US organizations meant to help the poor, and hes Mexican! Name a rich man and I can give you reasons they deserve to be in prison more so than any Heroin smuggler.
So...in your pathetic, suicidal world, you can just make stuff up and claim it as a fact? Facebook has NEVER taken a single piece of personal information from you that you didn't EXPLICITLY give it. And they were always up front about it. Meanwhile...Google, who I am sure you LOVE...takes every piece of personal information on you they can get...even if you aren't ON THEIR SITE. And they sell it to FAR more people than Facebook. So much so that they are worth a third of a TRILLION dollars
Great to always hear about huge donations. As the article states, he can afford it plus more. Wish I had tons of money so I could donate, but unfortunately I am not in that position.
