Money: it's a gas. It makes the world turn, yet most of it is held by the few people at the top. So, when a billionaire decides to be charitable and redistribute their incomprehensible funds, it’s a huge deal.

The latest? Jack Dorsey, who famously heads Twitter but also payments company Square. It's through the latter that he's just made a major commitment: he's moving US$1 billion of his equity in Square to fund COVID-19 relief efforts (at a later date, parts of this donation may go to other causes as well). The large amount in question will be distributed through Dorsey's Start Small LLC charitable fund.

Check out this gallery to see which other loaded donors have dropped the biggest donations of recent times.
