MacArthur Foundation is one of the largest U.S. philanthropic foundations. It "was founded in 1978 when John D. MacArthur passed away. He left ninety-two percent of his approximately $1 billion estate to begin the foundation. The foundation was created in John's will but with no instructions on how the money should be used. He left that up to his hand-picked board of directors. The composition of the first board included Catherine T. MacArthur (his wife), J. Roderick MacArthur (their son), three officers of Bankers Life (the company he established), and Paul Harvey (radio commentator)." [1]
