Mackenzie Scott’s generosity has landed in Louisville, again.
The philanthropist — formerly married to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos — donated $4.8 million to the Park Duvalle Community Health Center. The money will support dental and behavioral health services + address food insecurity in the area via a farmer’s market.
It’s not the first time Scott has looked benevolently upon Derby City — or even the second or third.
Just last year she gave Jefferson County Public Schools $20 million, its largest gift ever, to fund playgrounds, athletic fields, music rooms, and more at 11 West End schools.
She’s also recently donated:
- $10 million to Goodwill Industries of Kentucky
- $20 million to Metro United Way
- $5.7 million to the Urban League of Louisville
The monetary gifts are part of a run of mega-donations from Scott, who has given $14 billion to causes across the country in the last three years.
