Bill Gates currently has net worth of $86.8 billion. He would have been worth more than $150 billion if he hadn’t given his Microsoft shares in charity, according to an analysis of his publicly disclosed giving since 1996. Bezos, like Gates, also focuses on Philanthropy and has given up more than $500 million at current prices in charity.
