... Jeff Bezos' multi-billionaire ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, has given literally billions away to humanitarian and environmental causes she believes in.
Ms. Scott has recently also given $5.7 million to Louisville's Urban League chapter (likely the larger amount was due to the Breonna Taylor shooting), as well as $20 million to Jefferson County Schools in Louisville.
The organization addresses issues of racial inequality and social justice at a local level, helping to (among many other things), provide affordable housing, educational and job-training supplemental programs, as well as helping to provide funding towards legal issues that arise.
It is the largest single donation in the organization's history, and UL-LFC President and CEO, PG. Peeples is "honored and grateful," calling the gift "transformative."
Go MacKenzie! Go Kentucky Urban Leagues! Go National Urban League!
