MacKenzie Bezos Makes Giving Pledge
Updated on

MacKenzie Bezos committed to giving away at least half of the $37 billion windfall she will receive in her upcoming divorce from Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos.

She is one of the 19 new signatories to the Giving Pledge who’ve promised to donate more than 50% of their wealth to philanthropy or charitable causes, either during their lifetimes or in their wills, the organization said Tuesday. It was founded by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett in 2010 and now has 204 participants from 23 countries.
