Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook, and his wife, Priscilla Chan, were America’s most generous donors for 2013.

The couple topped the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s list of the 50 U.S. donors who gave the most to charitable causes. They received the most charitable designation with their December donation of 18 million shares of Facebook stock, valued at more than $970 million, to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

The couple, who are both under 30, have donated 36 million Facebook shares to the foundation in the past two years — an estimated value of $1.5 billion, according to the Chronicle. The money will go to education and health programs, they have said.

Joining Zuckerberg as Jewish donors in the top 10 were former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at No. 4, and Irwin and Joan Jacobs at No. 8.

The Jacobses donated $133 million donation to create the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute at Cornell NYC Tech to promote business ventures between academe and industry.

  2. So what? He’s still an whose site allows Pages to exist calling for the extermination of all Jews and complaints are ignored because such vilification does not breach ‘community standards’ guidelines. Nor are Muslims accounts suspended or deleted for harassing Jews via private messages! But call an abuser an idiot and a Jew will be blocked from commenting on anything for at least 12 hours, for breaching those standards! He can go to Sheol!

  3. Bullter!”’nothing like an abortion pushing slave pusher!

  4. Shame on those rich self-hating Jews they seldom help poverty stricken Jews, or Israel. who really needs help.
