贝奥斯has not revealed any additional details about the initiative since February.
The Bezos Earth Fund is one of the largest single philanthropic gifts in history but many questions about the effort remain. Philanthropy and environmental experts are particularly curious about the period of time in which the $10 billion will be donated.
“Ten billion dollars is a giant figure and so just by itself, that makes a big difference,” Stacy Palmer, editor of the independent news organization The Chronicle of Philanthropy, told GeekWire earlier this year. “But if it’s $10 billion that’s going to be spent over 20 years, that’s really different than $10 billion spent in one year for immediate projects or for research or for advocacy.”
贝奥斯is also using his personal fortune to fund new philanthropic initiatives. In 2018 heunveiled the $2 billion Day One Fundto promote innovations in preschool education and affordable housing.
