Jeff Bezos' former wife (Ex), MacKenzie Scott gives out 2.7 Billion dollars to the needy



MacKenzie Scott, the philanthropist, and ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced that she's making a replacement round of donations to charity.




MacKenzie, who is now married to Dan Jewett after her 25-year-old marriage to Amazon CEO crashed, made the announcement Tuesday, June 14, during a Medium blog post.
Scott and her husband Dan Jewett donated $2.74 billion to 286 organizations that specialize in the humanities and combating racism.




This marks Scott’s third major round of donations. Early 2020 she gave out almost $6 billion to 500 organizations. Scott is additionally a signer of the Giving Pledge, promising to offer away half her fortune to charitable causes during her lifetime, or after her death.



 MacKenzie Scott has given not less than $8.5 billion worth of donations in less than a year.


Listing the recipients of her recent donation, MacKenzie Scott stated: "Sitting right down to write this post, I felt stuck. I want to de-emphasize privileged voices and cede focus to others, yet I do know some media stories will specialize in wealth.


MacKenzie Scott, who is considered the 22nd richest person in the world, says she focused her latest donations on higher-level education, groups bridging divides through interfaith support, arts and culture, eliminating poverty organizations led by people of different races, and grassroots groups supporting local communities in every corner of the world.





She also stated that she wanted to give the money to those "that have been historically underfunded and overlooked.
