New York. U.S. billionaire McKenzie Scott has donated $ 50 million to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Youth Program. This amount is part of the donations currently being made by a known philanthropist. The National 4-H Council, which receives the money, said the donation will help the development of nearly six million children and their families.
4-H programs help children and young people across the country participate in health, science and other programs through post-school activities and other events. This is Scott’s second largest donation to an organization that supports the 120 – year – old Youth Empowerment Program, which announced it spent $ 2.7 billion last year on charities. He has not commented on the donations since then, but the organizations concerned have made the donations public.
More than eight billion dollars was given
Koosil leader Jennifer Chirangalo said the organization received an invitation in December to announce the donation. “When I heard the prize was $ 50 million, I was choking and I had to sit down,” Ciranchelo said. There were even tears in her eyes.
Over the past two years, Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has given away more than $ 8 billion. Forbes Magazine estimates his net worth at $ 45.7 billion.
