Prince Arthur Eze, Nigeria

Chairman, Atlas Oranto Petroleum

Estimated Giving: $6.3 million

One of Nigeria’s top oil men, Eze’s Atlas Oranto Petroleum has oil and gas claims in several African countries. Two years ago it sold several of its Liberian interests for $250 million, most of which went to Eze. But he pays it forward and is known for his giving habits: he is the patron of a Nigerian football team and regularly donates to universities. But in 2012 his biggest contributions went towards flood victims.
