    [h=4] The late Jack MacDonald, an elderly Seattle man who was believed to be poor because of his frugal lifestyle, donated a collective $188 million to three institutions through his will.

    An elderly Seattle man who lived a frugal lifestyle with holes in his clothes and coupons in his pockets has left behind a record-shattering $188 million in his will to three Washington institutions.
    As many are now learning, 98-year-old Jack MacDonald was never poor but was in fact a secret millionaire.


    "Jack went out of his way to look poor, partly because he didn't want to be badgered by people who wanted money," his stepdaughter Regen Dennis told the Seattle Times of the secret life-long philanthropist.
    MacDonald's astonishing donations following his death in September mark the largest philanthropic gift in Washington State this year, the Times reports. It's also the sixth-largest in the country for 2013 so far.


    Though he had no children of his own, 40% of his charitable trust will go to Seattle Children's Research Institution — with about $3.75 million to be donated the first year.

    Thirty percent will go to the Salvation Army and another 30% will go to the University of Washington School of Law, his 1940 alma mater
    "He felt really good about what he was doing with his money," said Dennis, "and our family feels good about what he's doing with his money."

    Good for him - sounds like his lifestyle also kept him off the radar for potential golddiggers. Beats a rich bastard who buys a $52 million third house and asks others to contribute to his vanity low-rated charity.

    He probably jerked off to babysitter porn, I mean let's be honest- there had to have been at least some of kind weird shit going on with a freak like this.

    His other claim to fame was that he heard Abe Lincoln's famous speech in person...

    sometimes knowing you don't have to worry about where tomorrow's $100 will come from, is all the pleasure you need.

    i like to think that should i win the powerball lottery i will never spend the principal winnings. they will sit in the bank forever and pay interest income. the security of knowing that whatever i want to try to do will never impact my minimum annual income, that i will always have someplace paid up to live in, will be the greatest freedom i can imagine.

    He had a low-key, low rent lifestyle, so he probably jerked off to Ames ads..

    I agree with this.
    There ì§ kinda something wrong if u feel u have to live like a derelict so that people wont bother u for money. Normal people say leave me alone. But good for him doing what he wanted with his money. Shame he couldn't enjoy it.

    The only sad part is that many of these charities are run by people who will steal or at least use the funds lavishly. Limo's, private jets,hookers,blow etc.
