This past July, philanthropist MacKenzie Scott shared an update on her pledge to donate a majority of her wealth. She listed 116 nonprofit organizations – including seven OFN member CDFIs - that her pledge had supported, totaling $1.7 billion. Now just a few months later, she has donated another $4.2 billion to 384 organizations nationwide, including an additional 24 OFN members.
