The 50 Most Generous Donors in the USA of 2012

Three of the top 5 of the largest donors in The United States were under 40 years old. Does this mean that the trend of donating is moving towards a younger age?  And if so, how does that affect the non-profit and charities they are donating to?

Among the leaders were Steven Spielberg, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, and Warren Buffet who donated over 30 billion himself. Click on the picture below to find a few of the top people.
