“Giving away money effectively isn’t easy.  It isn’t something they (wealthy people) ought to try to do in their spare time.  They ought to get an organization set up…that handles the nuts and bolts of what they want to accomplish.”

—Gordon Moore, Co-founder of Intel Corp. and of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, one of the largest charitable trusts in the U.S.  From “Moore’s Rules for Giving It Away,” The Wall Street Journal, Sept. 21, 2012
