MacKenzie Scott donates $1.7bn since Amazon boss divorce

MacKenzie Scott, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos's ex-wife, says that she has given $1.7bn to charity to date.

Shortly after announcing the divorce, Ms Scott signed the Giving Pledge, joining a campaign founded by billionaire investor Warren Buffett and ex-Microsoft boss Bill Gates and his wife Melinda. Ms Scott said she had given more than $580,000 to racial justice organisations and nearly $400,000 to groups aimed at advancing economic mobility.
