George Lucas Pledges the Majority of His Wealth to Education


Indiana Jones creator George Lucas

George Lucas has joined Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and 37 other billionaires in pledging the majority of their wealth to charity. Lucas has pledged the majority of his wealth to education, saying that "a good storyteller is ultimately a teacher -- using the arts as a means of making education emotionally meaningful." Lucas concluded his pledge by saying, "I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race."

Educational endeavors have long been a passion for Lucas and this pledge signals the pinnacle of his dedication to our future. We would like to thank George Lucas for his continuing efforts to improve education.
