In 2010, Philip and Donna were ranked #7 by Barron's in its list of '25 Best Givers' in the world,[1] and dubbed as "capitalist crusaders," by the New York Times Magazine. From 2001 to 2010, the foundation had funded more than 4,000 projects throughout the country.A Glimmer of Hope also runs a local program within Austin for at-risk youth and senior citizens.
