How much money did MacKenzie Scott donate to charity?

IN April 2021, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie Scott announced they were getting a divorce after a 25-year marriage.

How much money did MacKenzie Scott donate to charity?

In a self-published Medium post, Scott announced that she gave $2.7billion to a variety of charities.

Her latest contribution brings her total donations since her first giving spree in July 2020 to $8.5billion.

Her latest donation went to 286 organizations from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre to racial equity funds in philanthropy and journalism.

"Because community-centered service is such a powerful catalyst and multiplier, we spent the first quarter of 2021 identifying and evaluating equity-oriented non-profit teams working in areas that have been neglected," Scott wrote.

"The result was $2,739,000,000 in gifts to 286 high-impact organizations in categories and communities that have been historically underfunded and overlooked."

What is MacKenzie Scott's net worth?

After 25 years of marriage - as well as a trial separation - Bezos and Scott decided to split amicably in January 2019.

On April 4, the pair settled their divorce, with Scott retaining a four percent $36billion stake in Amazon.

Accoridng to Forbes, Scott has an estimated $53billion net worth.

She is currently the fourth-wealthiest woman in the world - and the 20th-wealthiest individual overall.

Did MacKenzie Scott re-marry after her divorce with Bezos?

Scott tied the knot with Dan Jewett, a high school science teacher from Washington two years after her divorce from Bezos.

Jewett announced the marriage with Mackenzie in a post on The Giving Pledge a platform where celebrities and the world's richest commit to giving away the majority of their wealth throughout their lifetime.

"It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning," Jewett wrote.

He added: "And now, in a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know—and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others."

Speaking of Scott in his pledge, Jewett wrote: "I have seen many ways that MacKenzie has seen her efforts enhanced when she acts on the belief that those with common values but different perspectives, strengths, and experiences are essential to effecting positive change.

"We are united in that understanding and in our excitement for all we have to learn from so many people working in service of others."

According to Forbes, Jewett worked as a chemistry teacher at Lakeside School where Scott and Bezos' kids attended.
