Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Walton Family is one of the richest families in the world, their wealth inherited from Bud and Sam Walton, founders of the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart. The five most prominent members (Jim, John (d. 2005), Rob, Alice, and Helen (d. 2007)) have consistently been in the top ten of the Forbes 400 since 2001, although Helen dropped to #11 in 2006, probably in part due to her extensive philanthropy. Christy Walton took her husband John's place after his death in 2005.

Collectively, the Waltons control over 39% of the company, and are worth approximately $18 billion each, for a combined total of $89.5 billion (as of March 2010).[1][2] After Helen Walton died in April 2007, her fortune will pass to charity over the next few years.
