GAP man buys share in Celtc PLC
American Billionaire John J Fisher, the son of GAP Clothing founder, Donald George Fisher, has purchased a 3.24% share in Celtic.
Fisher, 46, is ranked 317th in Forbes Magazine's list of wealthy Americans.
Fisher is the co-owner of Major League Baseball team, Oakland Athletics and also donates to poor American schools.
Fisher was previously interested in purchasing a share in Rangers and attended a recent match at Ibrox with Sir David Murray, but opted to invest in Celtic.
GAP are one of the most famous clothing brands in the world

Gap co-founder Donald George Fisher [born 1928] was born in San Francisco, California to Sydney Fisher, businessman, and Aileen Fisher, a cabinetmaker. He spent his childhood in the then-middle-class Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco. He graduated from Lowell High School in 1946, then attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a member of the university's Aquatic Team. He is an alumnus of the Theta Zeta chapter of the national fraternity Delta Kappa Epsilon. He earned a BS degree from the School of Business Administration at the University of California, Berkeley in 1951. According to Forbes, his estimated worth is to be at US$3.3 billion. Fisher is a Republican, active in San Francisco, California politics. He was a founding Board Member of the Presidio Trust (the public corporation that runs the Presidio of San Francisco), a post nominated by the President of the United States.[1] He is married to Dorris Fisher.

Philanthropy
Fisher has been active in several public education causes, including being a major contributor to KIPP charter schools—a national network of low-income, high-achieving college preparatory public charter schools. He is also a contributor to Teach For America, GreatSchools.net, and EdVoice, a state-wide coalition of California business leaders and others who support education reform. Fisher also serves on the California State Board of Education. Fisher and his family donated a generous sum of money to Princeton University in 2006, and the Fisher Hall dormitory at Princeton's new residential college Whitman College is named for him. [2]. He has also donated to charter schools and museums in San Francisco, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and paid for public sculptures in San Francisco.

Art collection
Since founding the Gap in 1969, Fisher and his wife Doris began collecting contemporary Western art. In 1993, ARTnews Magazine declared Fisher one of the top ten art collectors in the world. His collection, largely housed at the Gap headquarters in San Francisco, includes comprehensive, career-spanning works by Andy Warhol, Alexander Calder and Roy Lichtenstein, Ellsworth Kelly, Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Chuck Close, and Claes Oldenburg. On August 8, 2007, Fisher announced plans to build a 100,000 square foot museum in the San Francisco Presidio, tentatively named the Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio, to house his art collection. The museum, if built, will be larger than the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
