DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. — Happy birthday to Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg turns 33 on Monday and was born on May 14, 1984 in White Plains. He was brought up in Dobbs Ferry with his three sisters and the family attended Temple Beth Abraham in Tarrytown.
He launched the social media site in 2004 with his college roommates at Harvard and turned it into a multi-billion dollar company.
Since 2010 he's ranked among Time magazine's 100 wealthiest and most influential people and has an estimated net worth of approximately $48.2 billion.
As Facebook's financial success skyrocketed, so did Zuckerberg's philanthropy. On Dec. 1, 2015 Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan announced they'd donate 99 percent of their Facebook shares, valued then at approximately $45 billion, to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative was launched following the birth of the couple's daughter, Maxima, and its stated mission is to "advance human potential and promote equality in areas such as health, education, scientific research and energy."
