FACT: He has given the most. If you do not consider that generous then you have your own demons to deal with and I can't provide that sort of help to you.

Food for thought :

Bill Gates Net Worth $51 Billion

Gates Foundation Total Giving in 2000 $1 Billion

Generous yes, but hardly difficult for a $50 Billion man.
