Steven Spielberg & Wife Kate Capshaw Donate $500,000 to March For Our Lives

Steven Spielberg is the latest celebrity to donate to help fund the March for Our Lives.

The 71-year-old award-winning director and his wife Kate Capshaw have donated $500,000 to help offset the costs of the event in Washington, DC to protest for meaningful gun control created after students at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida were victims of a senseless act of violence when a shooter opened fire and killed 17 people.

“The young students in Florida and now across the country are already demonstrating their leadership with a confidence and maturity that belies their ages,” Steven and Kate said in a statement via Deadline. “Kate and I applaud their efforts to take a stand for the benefit of this and future generations. They are an inspiration to us all, and we are joining in this movement with a donation of $500,000.

George and Amal Clooney and Oprah Winfrey have all donated to the event already.

The event is a March 24 march on the streets of Washington, DC for children and families who want gun violence to end.
