Billionaire businessman Charles “Chuck” Feeney has finally gone broke after giving all his wealth to charity in the quest to die broke.
The co-founder of airport retail chain Duty Free Shoppers (DFS), is arguably the most generous and reclusive philanthropist in the world.
He is known for his promise to give away all of his money and literally die a penniless man.
“We learned a lot. We would do some things differently, but I am very satisfied. I feel very good about completing this on my watch,” Feeney tells Forbes. “My thanks to all who joined us on this journey. And to those wondering about Giving While Living: Try it, you’ll like it.”
According to Forbes , Feeney has donated more than $8 billion to charities, universities and foundations worldwide through his foundation, the Atlantic Philanthropies over the last four decades and they named him The James Bond of Philanthropy.
