Pay off family debts/bills, buy some houses/cars whatever for family. I haven't got many blood relations left and while I've got plenty of 2nd n 3rd cousins I'm not gonna buy em all something. Uncle Martin I haven't seen in 30 years... yeah, not so much.
Figure that'd cost me $20 million TOPS
I would buy some property, probably something like this
Let's call that $25 million
I'd buy a nice yacht or some charter/time share rights to a jet so I could get to my island
Call that $2 million
I'd set up some sort of revenue stream for a couple of my favorite charities
I don't really know what, but I've got some money, I may as well spread it around.
I'd gratuitously piss away a few million... cars, parties, nice clothing, gadgets... I'd solve some first world problems, like not having air conditioning in my house or the newest cell phone.
I'd probably buy my employer's business so I have something to do when I'm bored.
$5 million maybe
I would slap the other $395 million into some sort of savings/investment scheme, even at 2% interest that should give me $7.9 million gross income... I don't know, I should be able to sustain a reasonably lavish lifestyle on that much and still make yearly charitable contributions without stretching myself too badly.

Heh. Ignoring the poor excuses for eschatologists here, I would:
1: Pay off loans, purchase houses for family members, retire my parents and aunts and uncles.
2 Donate half after taxes to the church and various charities and scholarships.
3 Buy every newspaper possible with the remaining $100 million, combine most of their resources and do what needs to be done to make newspapers relevant again.

Donate to my athletics programs so they stop sucking. Be a philanthropist and get invited to all kinds of black tie events. Expensive lifestyle and all that. Get my own plane and call it "The Pearl Gourami."

1) Throw in bank to collect interest.
2) Get a house, single story with a pool and hot tub built into the pool.
3) Help out my family with what they need.
4) Go crazy on my tanks and blow a good chunk on all ADA/ custom gear
5) Try the most expensive sundae and eat at the French Laundry
(4 and 5 are my splurging)
6) Use it to go to college without loans. I'm 14!!!
7) I have no clue what to due with the rest.
