Mark Zuckerberg Announces Facebook Will Donate Millions to Fight Coronavirus

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook, has announced that his company will be matching up to $20 million in donations made to combat coronavirus.

The 35-year-old businessman put up a post on his Facebook page that says the company will match up to $10 million to their COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and also $10 million for the Center for Disease Control Foundation.

“A lot of people have told us they want to help fight coronavirus but aren’t sure how, so we’ve worked with the United Nations Foundation and the World Health Organization to start a COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, where anyone can go to make a donation,” Mark wrote on his page. “Facebook is matching up to $10 million in donations, and 100% of funds will directly support the work to prevent, detect and respond to the outbreak around the world. We’ll also match $10 million for the Center for Disease Control Foundation, which will launch a fundraiser in the next few weeks focused on combating the outbreak here in the US.”

“Thanks to everyone who is working to minimize the impact of the pandemic. More to come soon,” he concluded.
