    Given to you. Tax free. ONLY to be given to a charity that is not related to you in any way.
    What would you do with it?

    Who cares 2 million won't solve any thing. It won't provide any break through on some disease or affliction. It won't end hunger or homelessness , it won't prevent spouse abuse or drug addiction.

    I would give it out locally to charities that help the local people.

    2 mil is nothing nowadays, true.
    Id probably divide it among charities locally as well. Namely food banks but the majority to building no kill animal shelters.

    I'd found a small high school with it.

    Don't let your desire for the PERFECT get in the way of you doing some GOOD, Lad.

    $2 million dollars could do a LOT of good if it is applied thoughfully to some charitable undertaking.

    I built Rosetta and kept it online for the last ten years for less than 1/10th that amount.

    The first thing I'd do with the two million is set about how to fake giving it away to charity.

    Divvy it up amongst charities that do good work for the homeless.
