Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Philanthropist
    (January 3, 1935-February 2, 2009)
    Born in Lanett, Alabama
    Founded Habitat for Humanity (1976) and the Fuller Center for Housing (2005)
    Wrote 'No More Shacks!' (1986), 'The Theology of the Hammer' (1994) and 'More Than Houses' (2000)
    His marriage almost broke up over his early pursuit of money: 'Running a law office and a growing business consumed all of [my] time. I literally abandoned my wife and our two young children.'
    Although he founded Habitat for Humanity, he was overshadowed by its most famous volunteer, Jimmy Carter.
    He went on a year long sabbatical from Habitat's board following accusations of inappropriate touching from several female staffers and volunteers (1990).
    A decade and a half later, he was forced off the board following renewed sexual harassment allegations.
    He was a self-made millionaire who gave up his wealth to devote himself to charity.
    By the time he left Habitat, it had built homes for one million people.
    He said of Habitat's appeal, 'It is not a giveaway program, which appeals to more conservative people. It is a program which is full of compassion and that is compelling and attractive to more liberal people. It is strongly Christian without being dogmatic.'
    He was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Bill Clinton, who said, 'I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that Millard Fuller literally revolutionized the concept of philanthropy.'
