Omidyar tops list of best philanthropists

Omidyar NetworkBarron's magazine just ranked the top 25 philanthropists, based on who's giving to causes that are achieving the greatest results.

We at KaBOOM! are extremely proud to see the top slot occupied by Pierre and Pam Omidyar of the Omidyar Network.

The Omidyar Network has been an extremely generous funder of KaBOOM! for the past six years and is well-known for investing in social entrepreneurship. Their contributions support the KaBOOM! National Campaign for Play and kaboom.org, both of which multiply the impact of their contributions by allowing us to share tools and know-how with communities across the country. Also, earlier this year, the Omidyar Network funded the construction of the first KaBOOM! Nature Built playground.

Congratulations to Pierre and Pam Omidyar for this well-deserved recognition!
