MacKenzie Scott donates
an additional $4.2 billion

Just months after giving away $1.7 billion, MacKenzie Scott has announced an additional donation of $4.2 billion to 384 organizations that focus on operating in communities dealing with food insecurities, high poverty rates, racial inequality, and that aren’t typically considered for philanthropic contributions.

Funds were given to more than 30 educational institutions, over 40 food banks, and almost 50 local affiliates of Goodwill Industries International. It seems that no group applied for a grant—Scott’s team simply reached out to the organizations. As she did with her last massive donation, Scott wrote a post and listed every group that received a contribution online.

In her post, Scott asked her team to help her figure out how she can give her fortune away faster. Her wealth has been increasing as its primary source, stocks in Amazon, continue to surge as the pandemic continues. She has been praised, not only for how quickly she is giving away her wealth, but how she is doing it. By sharing the results of her research and criteria, people can learn about the organizations Scott is donating to and why they are worth supporting. In her post, she encourages others to learn about and donate to one of the organizations she has contributed to with this donation.

“Though I’m far from completing my pledge, this year of giving began with exposure to leaders from historically marginalized groups fighting inequities, and ended with exposure to thousands of organizations working to alleviate suffering for those hardest hit by the pandemic,” Scott wrote. “Witnessing the determination, creativity, and compassion of people in a crisis has been inspiring.”
