Why did Millionaires for Humanity start?

We share a vision of a fair and sustainable world. Billions of people remain trapped in poverty, without access to basic services. The COVID-19 crisis has greatly exacerbated these challenges setting back progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Inequality is widening, undermining social mobility and social cohesion. The world has entered a critical juncture in which business as usual solutions are not enough.

Driven by values of courage, equality and fairness, we recognise the urgency of now. All of us who have come together as Millionaires for Humanity remain involved in philanthropy and are proud of the contribution that it makes. We see, however, the need to go beyond philanthropy: charity alone no matter how generous and how smart, is not enough.

‘Millionaires for Humanity’ Sign On Letter

As Covid-19 strikes the world, millionaires like us have a critical role to play in healing our world. No, we are not the ones caring for the sick in intensive care wards. We are not driving the ambulances that will bring the ill to hospitals. We are not restocking grocery store shelves or delivering food door to door. But we do have money, lots of it. Money that is desperately needed now and will continue to be needed in the years ahead, as our world recovers from this crisis.
