TSR Positive Images: Jeff Bezos’ Ex-Wife, Mackenzie Scott, Reportedly Donated Over $20M To HBCU’s

Mackenzie Scott, ex-wife to the richest man in the world Jeff Bezos, announced that she has donated $1.7B to charity with over $20 million going to #HBCU’s.

In a @medium post, Scott listed #HamptonUniversity, #HowardUniversity, #MorehouseCollege, #SpelmanCollege, #TuskegeeUniversity, and #XavierUniversity as institutions that received a generous contribution.

While some schools have acknowledged the donation but have yet to disclose the amount, Tuskegee President Dr. Lily D. McNair reported the $20M gift, on Tuesday. This is the largest gift in the 140-year history of the university, according to @hbcubuzz.

“We will focus on student scholarships, faculty and curriculum development, interdisciplinary programs, and campus infrastructure improvements,” McNair added. “The gift will allow us to become the Tuskegee of the 21st Century – a university that integrates knowledge, leadership and service to solve the problems of a global, modern society.”

Scott reportedly walked away with almost $38 billion after her divorce from Jeff Bezos in 2019, according to @people.
