Entrepreneurs & Philanthropy: Mark Zuckerberg

It’s been over a decade since the launch of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg is a household name. And rightly so – his idea, his product has made a profound impact on modern lives.

Apart from this, Zuckerberg is also becoming known as an avid philanthropist – making generous gifts in the last few years to the Newark Public Schools and Silcon Valley Community Foundation among others. And less than two weeks ago it was also reported that Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, were to donate $120 million to the San Francisco Bay Area’s public school system.

This philanthropic activity has made him a prized prospect for many organizations.

But how can an organization decide whether Zuckerberg is within their reach? Capacity? Everyone knows he has that. Inclination? His acitivities in the last few years have demonstrate a desire to take on a philanthropic role.

So the only question left is to ask whether such a prominent individual is reachable.

A quick glance at the image from Prospect Visual shows a selection of some of the more well-known people within Zuckerberg’s Sphere of Influence and who in turn have the potential to influence him when it comes to making donations.


Do you see a path to him? If not, perhaps it’s time to compile information on his entire network and find out whether he’s within your reach!
