The Washington Post looks at the giving records of its 16 local billionaires; David Rubenstein is an obvious first place, but how do the other 15 rank?

"The Washington area now boasts 16 individuals with a personal fortune of $1 billion or more. (One more if you count Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, the Chicago heiress worth $2.3 billion who reportedly bought a house in the District last fall.) Leading the list, at least when it comes to public philanthropy, is David Rubenstein, who went on a spree last year: $121 million in donations, including $50 million to the Kennedy Center, $10 million to the National Gallery of Art, and $10 million to Mount Vernon.... He’s a hard act to follow, but we got curious: How much have the other Washington area super-rich given away?" -- Roxanne Roberts, the Washington Post
