"Giving while living" is one of the mottos that the very wealthy Chuck Feeney lives by, along with "not tooting his own horn" -- which means that although he gives boatloads of money away as many billionaires do he's different in that he pretty much always does it anonymously and/or goes to great lengths to make sure he doesn't get acknowledged in any way for his generosity.
His current plans are what's getting him into the news (much to his dismay, I'm sure) as he plans to give away $8 billion by the year 2016, mostly through the foundation Atlanta Philanthropies that he started back in 1984. He says there's no point in holding onto all that money and that he's "not going to die until he can spend it."
Good luck Mr Feeney!
