Mackenzie (Bezos) Scott Announces She’s Donated $4.1 Billion To 384 Groups In Recent Months



MacKenzie Scott — the ex-wife of Jeff Bezos — has donated more than $4.1 billion over the past four months to nearly 400 organizations helping fulfill basic needs for many Americans struggling in the pandemic.

“This pandemic has been a wrecking ball in the lives of Americans already struggling. Economic losses and health outcomes alike have been worse for women, for people of color, and for people living in poverty. Meanwhile, it has substantially increased the wealth of billionaires.”

She is the third richest woman in the world. Scott is worth an estimated $55.1 billion, after taking into account her newest charitable giving.

Her gifts to these organizations are unrestricted, meaning that were not earmarked for certain initiatives.
That allows the recipients to use the money however they best see fit.
