Susan Alice Buffett

Susan Alice Buffett (30 July 1953) is the daughter of Warren Buffett. She is also an American philanthropist, her charitable work has focused largely on the Sherwood Foundation, formerly known as the Susan A. Buffett Foundation, an organization in Omaha that provides grants in public education, human services and social justice in the interest of promoting the welfare of children from lower-income families. She is also on the boards of the Buffett Foundation and Girls, Inc. According to a 2010 interview with her brother Howard Graham Buffett, Buffett's philanthropic focus has consistently remained on children, education and family issues, but she has also committed to other causes, including Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa, a non-governmental organization dedicated to various improvements in Africa.



Born in Omaha in 1953, Buffett, commonly called Susie, is the eldest child of Warren Buffett and his first wife, Susan Thompson Buffett.

In 1954, her family relocated to New York, where her father's wealth began to rapidly accumulate. By the late 1970s, the family had returned to Omaha and her parents separated (though they remained married until her mother's death in 2004). Notwithstanding his wealth, Warren Buffett encouraged his children to be financially independent; Buffett recalled in 2006 that in spite of his generosity her father once refused her a personal loan of $41,000 to expand her kitchen.

In 1983, Buffett wed Allen Greenberg, a lawyer for Public Citizen, whom she had met in Washington. The couple divorced in 1995.

In 1987, Allen became the first director of the Buffett Foundation, a title he retained after the couple's divorce.
