Additional Information on David Geffen

* In 1999, when President Clinton responded to a series of deadly shootings in American high schools by urging the entertainment industry to tone down its emphasis on violence, Geffen said: “Why not blame the libraries? They’re full of violent books.”

* As of 2013, the David Geffen Foundation’s assets were just under $89.7 million.
