Seattle philanthropists Sarah and Rich Barton have signed the给予承诺, joining more than 200 billionaires and ultra-wealthy people around the globe who’ve pledged to give away their massive fortunes.

Rich Barton是Zillow集团和Expedia的联合创始人,以及一家支持Avvo,Glassdoor和Nextdoor等公司的天使投资者。一位前微软总经理re-assumed the CEO post of Zillow in 2019,巴顿也坐在Netflix的董事会上。

Sarah Barton is an obstetrician and women’s health advocate who studied at the University of Washington, and now manages the Barton Family Foundation.

该堡垒已经活跃在慈善事业中,因此他们对给予承诺的承诺并不是一个惊喜。

给予承诺由慈善家比尔和梅琳达盖茨和投资者沃伦巴菲特在慈善家开始,以鼓励地球上的一些最富有的人捐献他们的大部分财富的目标。迄今为止,216名慈善家加入了承诺,包括Facebook联合创始人Mark Zuckerberg,Salesforce联合创始人Marc Benioff和Airbnb联合创始人Brian Chesky。

Other Seattleites who’ve signed on include MacKenzie Scott —who was in the news earlier this month for her latest $4 billion donation— the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and angel investors Nick and Leslie Hanauer, who are close friends with the Bartons.

尽管大流行,巴顿的净值在2020年飙升,担任西雅图的在线房地产Juggernaut Zillow集团今年的三倍以上。Zillow集团现在拥有330亿美元的市场价值。截至5月,巴顿占Zillow普通股票的31%。
