Warren Buffett gives away $4.1 billion, resigns as trustee at Gates Foundation

He's done that with annual contributions to five foundations. He made a yearly contribution of shares worth about $4.1 billion Wednesday, which he says puts him halfway to that goal. He also is resigning as a trustee of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the five foundations that regularly receives his contributions.
