Amazon’s CEO’s Ex Wife Donates $1.7 Billion to Charity



To much is given, much is expected…Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his ex-wife Mackenzie had a very expensive divorce.  Her settlement was 38 Billion dollars, so it was a drop in the bucket (even though very generous) when it was announced that she donated $1.7 Billion dollars of her money to charity…Talk about giving back…Look out Oprah…

Here’s the breakdown of her jaw-dropping gift:

-$586.7 million to racial equity
-$46 million to LGBTQ+ equity
-$133 million to gender equity
-$399.5 million to economic mobility
-$55 million to empathy and bridging divides
-$72 million to functional democracy
-$128.3 million to public health
-$130 million to global development
-$125 million to climate change
