Mackenzie Scott Donates Another $2.7 Billion To Charity

Mackenzie Scott, ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has donated over $2.7 billion to 286 non-profit organizations. The billionaire said that she wanted to give the money to people that “have been historically underfunded and overlooked”. Scott received much of her fortune from her 2019 divorce from Bezos. She was given 4% of Amazon's shares as she helped Bezos to start the company. At the end of 2020, it was revealed that she donated over $4 billion to women-led charities, food banks and black colleges. Despite these donations, Scott is still the 22nd richest person in the world. According to Forbes, she is worth $59.5 billion. In a recent blog post, Scott said that she wishes to redistribute her wealth.
