The 2006 Slate 60
The 60 largest American charitable contributions of the last year.
For the seventh year, the Chronicle of Philanthropy helpfully put together the list of gifts and pledges. Slate would like to thank Maria Di Mento, who compiled the list with the assistance of Noelle Barton, Heather Joslyn, Sam Kean, Nicole Lewis, and Ian Wilhelm.
Rachael Larimore is Slate's managing editor.
