Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is following in his ex-wife's footsteps. The philanthropist plans to donate a majority of his multi-billion dollar fortune to charitable causes throughout his lifetime.
Bezos, who has a net worth of $124 billion according to Forbes estimates, told CNN in an exclusive interview that he plans to give the majority of his money to fighting climate change as well as towards efforts to unify the human race.
This was the first time Bezos — who stepped down from his role as Amazon's CEO in 2021 to become executive chair — announced that he would be giving away the bulk of his money to charity, although he declined to specify an exact percentage or where it will go.
Bezos told the outlet that he and his partner, former journalist Lauren Sanchez, are "building the capacity to be able to give away this money."
