Jeff Bezos’s Ex-Wife Mackenzie Scott Donates Two Beverly Hills Homes Worth $55 Million To Charity



Jeff Bezos’s Ex-Wife Mackenzie Scott Donates $55 Million Beverly Hills Estate

MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has donated two Beverly Hills homes for a total of $55m.

Ms Scott’s estimated net worth is $37bn. She owns four per cent of Amazon after selling $8.5bn in company stocks earlier this year. She has so far donated more than $12bn to charitable causes and groups.

The non-profit California Community Foundation (CCF), announced last month that the 52-year-old was giving up “two single-family residences valued at $55 million,” according to the New York Post.

Last year, Ms Scott married Dan Jewett, a high school chemistry teacher. She transferred the two mansions to the CCF on 29 July, according to records.

Two houses on the property—one, a 12,000-square-foot Hacienda-style home and the other, a 4,500-square-foot ranch-style abode—sit behind gates, surrounded by a swimming pool, tennis court, a vast lawn, and robust trees that encircle the estate. A total of thirteen bedrooms and fourteen bathrooms are found throughout.

According to a press release by the CCF, ninety percent of the property’s sale will go toward the organization’s affordable housing efforts and the remaining to its immigrant integration program.

After her divorce, Scott signed the Giving Pledge, promising to donate at least half of her wealth over her lifetime, and has since gifted billions of her dollars to large and small organizations dedicated to social equity. Included in the list of recipients—and receiving a gift of $20 million—is Spelman College, the historically Black, all-women’s school where Angelina Jolie recently dropped off her daughter Zahara Jolie-Pitt, as she begins her higher education.
