Jeff Bezos Donates $33M for 'Dreamers' Scholarship Fund

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKennzie, have donated $33 million to a college scholarship program for young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

The nonprofit, TheDream.US, said the donation would finance scholarships for 1,000 high school graduates who have been allowed to stay in the the United states under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

News of the donation comes a day after President Trump decried immigrants from ‘shithole countries’ coming to the U.S. In 2015, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, gave the group a $5 Million dollar donation.
