Silicon Valley Philanthropist Cari Tuna

When speaking of young power couples of Silicon Valley, Dustin Moskovitz and Cari Tuna are at the top of the list. When in their mid-20s, Moskovitz, who co-founded Facebook, and Tuna became the youngest couple to sign on to Bill Gates’ Giving Pledge, an initiative to encourage the most wealthy to donate the majority of their money. Together, the couple founded Good Ventures, a foundation that supports causes such as accountability in prosecution, criminal justice reform, animal welfare and healthcare research.

“We’ve learned about the limitations of traditional philanthropy,” they write on their website. “The lack of transparency. Difficulty measuring impact. Few clear feedback loops to allow for iteration and improvement. At the same time, we’ve heard from some of the most innovative and effective philanthropists, nonprofits and companies about what’s working and what’s promising. None of us can solve humanity’s problems alone.”
