Huateng Ma

Founder and CEO

Better known as Pony Ma, 42, China’s reclusive Internet magnate donated 128 million yuan last year, mainly towards education. The bulk of his donation — via his Tencent Charity Foundation — went to the construction of school buildings and other infrastructure to improve the quality of education and school conditions in the poorer regions of China. He also gave five million yuan to the earthquake-stricken Sichuan province.
