As the richest person in the world, Bill Gates is, of course, also the richest resident of Washington. He stepped down from full-time work at Microsoft to become more invested at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Over the years, he has built a reputation as a serious thinker about the world’s problems and has steered the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to tackle issues like improving health care and the use of vaccines in developing countries. Together, Bill & Melinda Gates have given away more than $29 billion in their lifetime.
