Jeff Bezos donated more than $170 million in Amazon.com Inc. shares just over a month after he announced a series of mega-donations.

The world’s richest person said in July he would give $100 million to Van Jones, a CNN political contributor and founder of Dream Corps, and to chef José Andrés, who cofounded World Central Kitchen, which helps feed and support people in disaster-stricken regions.
