Jeff Bezos' ex-wife, donated $1.7B on Wednesday, By Friday, she'd made it all back
quote:

MacKenzie Scott (formerly MacKenzie Bezos) announced Wednesday that she had donated $1.7 billion to 116 different organizations tackling a variety of social issues.

By Friday afternoon, the value of her stake in Amazon had grown so much that she is is now richer than she was before the gift, according to CNBC's Robert Frank.


Scott, an author by trade, became a billionaire following her 2019 divorce from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Scott received 25% of Bezos' stake in the e-commerce giant, minus voting control, after helping him found the company in 1997.

Scott has a net worth of $60.8 billion, per Bloomberg's latest available estimate.

The value of Amazon shares has skyrocketed during the pandemic, helping Bezos' net worth reach new all-time highs, too.

The $1.7 billion gift is likely only the start of Scott's philanthropic efforts. She signed the Giving Pledge in 2019.

that .8 is pretty deceptive since it equals to 800 million dollars.

If Amazons Ex has 60 billion, Etsy is worth atleast 10 billion right?

I couldn’t imagine going from being a normal working person trying to start a company to 60 billion. That’s hard to process.

Wonder what organizations will be having newly planned "conferences" in Aspen, instead of Des Moines, now after the donation

That same increased net worth though could be gone tomorrow. It isn’t liquid cash.

You can buy a lot of federal judges and politicians with that much money.

Maybe better for money board. But could you even successfully liquidate that much stock at that price? At that volume would it crash the stock?
