Whitney Tilson

Value investing maven Whitney Tilson has been concentrating on value of a different kind of late: The founder of T2 Partners has helped organize and finance Reach, a $1 million effort that will pay cash rewards of $500 to $1,000 to teens at New York City public schools who ace their Advanced Placement tests. Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Foundation has also donated to the program.
