How the Waltons, America's wealthiest family and heirs to the Walmart empire, live their lives

Business Insider Logo By Rachel Askinasi and Mary Hanbury of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 53: 
  
    The 
    Walmart heirs' combined worth is more than $155 billion,
    according to Forbes.
    
  
  
    The family grants money and resources to support
    education, environmental efforts, and their home community
    through the Walton Family Foundation.
  
  
    In public, the Waltons live pretty modest lifestyles
    despite 
    their wealth. Here's how they spend their 
    fortune.
  

  The combined wealth of the 
  Walmart heirs - which includes Rob, Jim, and Alice, as well
  as John's wife, Christy, and their son Lukas - is more than $155
  billion, according to Forbes,
  which released its 2019 Billionaire's list on Tuesday.
  The Walton's saw their net worth drop from the previous list. 

  While some work in the family business - whether that's serving
  on the company board or working to manage the family's wealth -
  others 
  chose to pursue areas of personal passion.

  Sam Walton, the original man behind the company that now
  encompasses both Walmart and Sam's Club, set his family up for
  financial success when he divided the ownership before he died.

  He wasn't a man of flashy luxury, but you can see how his
  children are living a slightly more lavish life now.
