Scott, now Bezos's ex-wife, has donated $2.7 billion to hundreds of different organizations.

Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, made the announcement in a Medium blog post on Tuesday.

"These are people who have spent years successfully advancing humanitarian aims, often without knowing whether there will be any money in their bank accounts in two months," Scott wrote. "What do we think they might do with more cash on hand than they expected? Buy needed supplies. Find new creative ways to help. Hire a few extra team members they know they can pay for the next five years. Buy chairs for them. Stop having to work every weekend. Get some sleep."

After years of GOP spending and tax cuts, Rick Scott wants to focus on the debt

  After years of GOP spending and tax cuts, Rick Scott wants to focus on the debt WASHINGTON — For four years, former President Donald Trump ignored a campaign promise to reduce the federal debt, and the COVID-19 pandemic spurred enormous amounts of government spending under Trump and President Joe Biden. Now, with Republicans out of power, Florida Sen. Rick Scott says he wants to zone in on reducing the debt, a rallying cry of Tea Party Republicans a decade ago.

Tuesday's announcement is the third major round of donations Scott has made over the past year. In 2020, she pledged roughly $6 billion to coronavirus relief organizations, racial equity groups, historically Black colleges and more.

Her latest philanthropic effort included $2,739,000,000 in gifts to 286 organizations in "categories and communities that have been historically underfunded and overlooked."

"We chose to make relatively large gifts to the organizations named below, both to enable their work, and as a signal of trust and encouragement, to them and to others," Scott wrote in her Medium post.
