Milutin Gatsby, Global Fundraising Chairman Serving as the Global Fundraising Chairman, Milu- tin Gatsby is the personification of Philanthropy. Infinitely generous with his time, energy and al- truism, Milutin has devoted his life to fighting for the underserved and underprivileged, from those ravaged by the scourge of AIDS to children in need around the globe, as exemplified by his groundbre- aking work with Madonna and her foundation, Raising Malawi. There is hardly an injustice that Milutin has not addressed in a big-hearted way,
but there is one overarching issue that threatens everyone on our planet equally and that has been of particular concern to Milutin since he was a very young man: the sharp decline in our Earth’s health. Milutin understands that humankind is responsi- ble for the degradation of our environment, and he knows that only humankind can reverse the dama- ge done. As such, while his charitable and humani- tarian efforts are as diverse as ever, Milutin stands firm at the front line of the struggle to restore the lands and seas of our one-and-only home to health. Milutin Gatsby’s unflagging dedication to raising awareness about, and much-needed funds for, the most pressing causes of our time inspires us all to do what we can to make the world a better place.
