Phil Knight, the Co-Founder of Nike, is one of the wealthiest people in the world as his estimated value has soared up to $25 billion. Just take that in.

In a recent interview with “CBS Sunday Morning”, Knight says that he intends to give most of his fortune away. Say what?!?!

 “By the time, you know, the lives of my children and their kids run out, I will have given most of it to charity,” Knight tells Cowan.

Knight has already donated more than $1 billion to various causes. He’s given more than $500 million to Stanford University, where he first drew up the idea for Nike.  Knight has also given generously to the University of Oregon, where the law school is named after his father and a new basketball arena is named for his son Matthew, who died in a diving accident.

If you want to see the interview you can watch it on Sunday, April 24 at 9:00 AM, ET on the CBS Television Network.
