  • Bill Gates , the world's second-richest person, has an estimated net worth of $94.8 billion , according to Forbes.
  • While he indulges in a few luxuries, they make up only a fraction of his fortune.
  • He mainly spends his billions on charity through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and plans to give away most of his fortune.

Bill Gates, the cofounder of Microsoft, is the world's second-richest person, sitting on an estimated net worth of about $95 billion , according to Forbes.

It's hard to imagine what to do with that amount of money, but Gates knows how to make the most of it. While he has some indulgences like a Washington estate worth $125 million , a private airplane, and a luxury-car collection they make up only a fraction of his massive fortune.

He and wife, Melinda, previously said it's unfair they're so rich. Instead of spending billions on themselves, they often donate it to charity through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. They've also pledged to give away most of their fortune through the Giving Pledge , which they launched in 2010.

See how Gates spends his billions.
