A Commitment to Giving Back
Sidney Kimmel’s hard work ethic, competitive nature, and sharp business mind, made him a legend in the fashion industry. But it is Mr. Kimmel’s generous spirit that stands out to the countless institutions and individuals he has affected through The Sidney Kimmel Foundation.
The Giving Pledge, initiated by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. Mr. Kimmel has not only executed the Giving Pledge, but has actually implemented it during his lifetime, having given away well in excess of half his wealth.
