Philanthropist and billionaire David Rubenstein is investing millions into the nation’s historic sites, museums and culturally significant institutions.

“I get a lot of pleasure out of doing these things. And if I didn’t do them and I died with more money, would I be a happier person? I don’t think so,” says Rubenstein in an interview with NPR reporter.
