MacKenzie Scott, Ex Wife of Jeff Bezos, Says She Donated $4.2 Billion in 4 Months

MacKenzie Scott, the ex wife of Jeff Bezos, says she donated $4.2 billion to 384 organizations over the last four months.

“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,” the 50-year-old wrote in a post on Medium on Tuesday (December 15).

She detailed some of the issues she’s been trying to address through her donations.

“Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable,” she posted. “Others are addressing long-term systemic inequities that have been deepened by the crisis: debt relief, employment training, credit and financial services for under-resourced communities, education for historically marginalized and underserved people, civil rights advocacy groups, and legal defense funds that take on institutional discrimination.”

MacKenzie added, “If you’re craving a way to use your time, voice, or money to help others at the end of this difficult year, I highly recommend a gift to one of the thousands of organizations doing remarkable work all across the country. Every one of them could benefit from more resources to share with the communities they’re serving. And the hope you feed with your gift is likely to feed your own.”

Bloomberg has MacKenzie as having a net worth of $60.9 billion, making her the 18th richest person in the world.

MacKenzie Bezos Pledges Half Her $37 Billion Fortune to Charity, Jeff Bezos Reacts

MacKenzie Bezos, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has pledged to give half of her $37 billion fortune to charity.

The 49-year-old philanthropist has joined other billionaires in the Giving Pledge. The initiative was launched by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates back in 2010.

“I have no doubt that tremendous value comes when people act quickly on the impulse to give. No drive has more positive ripple effects than the desire to be of service,” MacKenzie wrote on the Giving Pledge’s website. “We each come by the gifts we have to offer by an infinite series of influences and lucky breaks we can never fully understand. In addition to whatever assets life has nurtured in me, I have a disproportionate amount of money to share. My approach to philanthropy will continue to be thoughtful. It will take time and effort and care. But I won’t wait. And I will keep at it until the safe is empty.”

Jeff, who is worth $114 billion and has not yet signed the Giving Pledge, applauded his ex-wife’s announcement.

MacKenzie is going to be amazing and thoughtful and effective at philanthropy, and I’m proud of her. Her letter is so beautiful. Go get ‘em MacKenzie,” he tweeted.
