In 2012 SHOOK Research began an unprecedented project: identifying, researching and ranking the world's biggest individual philanthropic givers based on how much they have actually given—not to their foundations, but what came out; not how much they pledged, but how much they have actually paid out. To this day, only SHOOK provides this research.
These individuals are committed to saving lives and making the world a better place. Selected givers are ranked and published in an annual feature story in Forbes magazine.
