Philanthropy isn't totally dead: David Rubenstein, the Carlyle Group's managing director, donated $10 million to Lincoln Center's $1.2 billion redevelopment project. Previously, he's donated a copy of the Magna Carta to the National Archives and loaned a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation to the Smithsonian. Lincoln Center will be naming its new visitors-ticket center the "David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center" (formerly the Harmony Atrium). Rubenstein told the Times, “My view is, if you have money, you can spend it, you can save it, or you can give it away...I bought all the things I need to buy.”
