Paul Allen Named One Of America's Biggest Philanthropists

Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen was listed near the top of The Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual Philanthropy 50 rankings, which looks at the top Americans who donate the most to charity.

Allen donated approximately $295 million to charity in 2016, which placed him in the top-5 alongside Michael Bloomberg, Howard and Lottie Marcus and John Arnold and his wife, Laura. Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, topped the list.

One of Allen's recent donations came at the end of last year, when he partnered with Cocoon House and helped raise $280,974 to prevent youth homelessness and provide services and safe places for vulnerable youth in the Pacific Northwest region.
