Dustin Moskovitz and Cari Tuna Set to Ramp Up Giving in 2015

Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his wife, Cari Tuna, will commit to their initial focus areas for their grant strategy this year, after three years of planning, The Washington Post writes in a profile of the billionaire couple.

The article casts Mr. Moskovitz, 30, and Ms. Tuna, 29, as emblems of millennial-generation philanthropy and pioneers of "effective altruism," relying on evidence over emotion in determining how to give away much of an estimated $8.1-billion fortune. After three years intensively collecting data on various causes and giving approaches, they intend to focus on four major areas: U.S. policy, global catastrophic risks, international aid, and science.
