Melinda Gates does not intend to donate her property to the charity she had with Bill


Melinda Franz Gates is no longer committed to donating most of her fortune to the charity she set up with her ex-husband and will instead donate the money to other charities, the Wall Street Journal reported today.

The 57-year-old IT specialist made this decision at the end of 2021, after her divorce from the co-founder of Microsoft Corp, Bill Gates. The couple promised in 2010 that they would donate most of their fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which was founded in 2000 and spent $ 55 billion in the first twenty years of its operation to fight poverty, inequality and disease.

A spokeswoman for the foundation declined to comment on what Melinda Franz Gates wrote in her Letter of Intent, which she published separately from her ex-husband. “I recognize that it is absurd to accumulate so much wealth in the hands of one person and I believe that the only responsible thing one can do with a fortune of this magnitude is to distribute it – as discreetly as possible and in such a way as to have the greatest possible effect “, she writes in her letter.
