GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons and his wife Renee Parsons are known to be philanthropic, and I want to share the CBS 5 video below. In the video, Renee Parsons discusses the family’s commitment to philanthropy by helping a variety of non-profit organizations. The focus of the video is local organizations in Arizona, and the accompanying article also discusses the Parsons’ commitment to philanthropy in general.
Mr. Parsons was recently named to the 2014 Forbes 400 list with a net worth estimated by Forbes at $1.9 billion. The first two members of the Forbes 400 list are Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, two noted philanthropists who started The Giving Pledge to encourage others to greatly participate in philanthropic causes by the tune of 50% of their net worth. In December of 2013, it was announced that Bob and Renee Parsons joined The Giving Pledge.
I think it is important to support great organizations that help others, and it’s good to see that Renee and Bob Parsons are doing that.
