Billy Graham net worth: Billy Graham is an American evangelical Christian evangelist who has a net worth of $25 million. Billy Graham is a Southern Baptist who rose to celebrity status as his sermons were broadcast on radio and television stations around the country. Graham was born on a dairy farm near Charlotte, North Carolina on November 7, 1918. He was the oldest of four children. Billy attended Sharon High School and then Bob Jones college. After just one semester, Billy dropped out and transferred to what was then called the Florida Bible Institute (today's Trinity College of Florida). After college Billy served as a pastor for a number of churches around the country. In 1950 he founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Within a few years the civil rights movement began to sweep the nation. Billy, who had never really thought much about the plight of African Americans was instantly inspired to help the cause. He began refusing to speak or appear at events that were segregated. He joined the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955 where he met and befriended Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1957, Billy invited Dr. King to join him during a 16 week Christian event held at New York City's Madison Square Garden. This 16 week event attracted more than 2.3 million visitors from around the country and helped propel Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement into the mainstream conscience. Billy personally posted bail for Dr. King on several occasions after the MLK had been arrested during demonstrations. Billy Graham was also the official spiritual advisor to several Presidents including Nixon and Eisenhower. It has been estimated that during his lifetime, Billy's sermons have reached an audience across television and radio of more than 2.2 billion people. He married his wife Ruth in 1943 and they remained together until her death in 2007. Ruth and Billy had five children together 19 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
