British Billionaires Giving Away Money

I love writing about billionaires giving away money and to keep the series going I thought I would highlight some of the most generous British philanthropists who help people in need. Britain is home to over 100 billionaires who are attracted by the counties heritage and character. In fact there are 56 billionaires in Britain who are part of the Ultra-Exclusive Club according to the Hurun Global Rich List of 2014.

In this special post I will be highlighting these exceptionally generous billionaires and share their contact details should you wish to contact their foundation for help and assistance. If you need money immediately then this might not be the answer as being approved for a grant takes time and effort. You should definitely try to engage with these rich people as any help could have a profound and positive effect on your life. There are countless examples of billionaires and millionaires helping individuals so there is a chance to get help which would ultimately change the trajectory of your life. So without further ado here are five British billionaires who give away money.

British Billionaires Giving Away Money

The best way to reach out to these billionaires is through their charitable foundation however that does not mean you can’t contact them personally. You must have a genuine need in order to contact billionaires for help. Most people fail to get through the first stage because they don’t really have a genuine need and just want some money quickly. Try to understand your needs and then find a charitable foundation supported by a billionaire who sympathizes to your needs and then you’ll have a great chance to get help. Please feel free to share this list of British Billionaires giving money away with other people who might find it useful or entertaining. Good Luck!

My ten -year-old son , Ashu, was diagnosed with a kidney condition.Am a single mother i lost my Husband a year ago,I have no job, We stay in a one small on rent of $ 20 dollars per month, Before my husband died we had a little savings that is what we have been depending on,now is finished.Due to this i can not afford to give treatment to my son but only to see him die. I wish i could have the courage to write down all my sad life to you,its so worst than i can write to you. Despite all of these problems , Ashu still manages to carry a positive attitude and make every attempt to make others laugh. He loves playing soccer and basketball.

    I am requesting any assistance that you may be capable of giving, whether it is monetary support, publicity surrounding his condition, or a donation. I understand that you may receive many letters, like this one, requesting for financial support, and I honestly understand if you are not able to assist at this point in time.
