Warren Buffett's son launches charity to support Women

A new philanthropic organization set up by Warren Buffett's son called the NoVo foundation will devote $90 million over seven years to support young women and girls of color in the United States. Most of Warren Buffett's philanthropy typically goes towards helping the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation eliminate diseases and supporting the developing world.

Peter Buffett and his wife Jennifer will distribute the $90 million through their foundation. The foundation works to advance adolescent girls' rights, ending violence against them, helping local economies, supporting Indigenous communities, and researching social and emotional learning. They first announced their $90 million commitment last year.
