Gilded Age is the key stage of the development of the United States. It can be said that it is the time to establish the position of the United States as a powerful country. This paper studies the ideological transformation of the top rich in the early 20th century and its influence. Through investigation, it is found that with the rapid development of economy and the aggravation of the polarization between the rich and the poor, due to the special role of various social aspects, there is a return of the concept of charity. Ideological change will inevitably have a significant impact on society. This study aims to provide the reader with a clear analysis of the social face of the Gilded Age in the United States, and also an opportunity to adopt other perspectives to understand the ideology behind the active participation of the wealthy in charity in today’s American society.
