Hi, I am Ron Conway. If you have never heard about me, today you will.
Below are links from Forbes and Business Insider about me.

I=E2=80=99ve spent the better part of nearly 50 years working and investing=
tech companies, supporting extremely talented and dedicated founders,
for which I am very proud and grateful. These founders are to be
commended for their successes: creating a large number of jobs, and
technologies that we use every day to make life and work more
productive, and our world more connected.

Success is not just what you build, it=E2=80=99s how you give back.

After my first company, Altos Computer Systems, went public in 1982,
Gayle and I became co-founders of the Altos Foundation, which pioneered
support for domestic violence shelters and preventative efforts. We
also began donating locally, initially to our kids=E2=80=99 schools, and th=
to Bay Area children=E2=80=99s hospitals.

SV Angel was fortunate to be an early investor in Google. The day our
Google investment first became liquid, half went directly to charitable
commitments -- not to a personal foundation or donor advised fund
sitting on investments for years, waiting for direction. As my
successes grew, my charitable commitments have grown and today.

impactful business leaders of the past century. After building his
business, Chuck, co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers, founded Atlantic
Philanthropies and gave away 99% of his over $8B fortune over 40 years.

The purpose of this long boring letter to you is very straightforward,
Going forward, I decided my philanthropy will be more direct, I have
directed $500 Million towards this cause, I intend on contacting lucky
individuals using their email address and giving them money.

I am a tech guy and this is the way I see philanthropy trending. Every
email address ever opened belongs to somebody somewhere in the world,
You have received this email now you are part of my journey.

Provide your name and address and I will contact you again on how you
will be paid.

I am a proud =E2=80=9Cnever-billionaire.=E2=80=9D I continue to pursue high=
investments with SV Angel and I will be directing nearly all future
gains directly to philanthropy.
