On Friday, Bezos and his wife, author MacKenzie Bezos, donated $33 million to TheDream.US, an organization that funds scholarships for immigrants known as Dreamers who were brought to the USA illegally as children.
Jeff Bezos has donated $33 million to provide college scholarships to a group of immigrants who were brought to the USA as children and temporarily protected from deportation under a program the Trump administration is phasing out.
"My dad came to the USA when he was 16 as part of Operation Pedro Pan", said Jeff Bezos.

Neither have wrestled much on the independent scene, but have appeared off and on for other WWE projects over the years. However, one of the most intriguing aspects of the women's match has been who exactly will appear in the bout.
Bezos donation is expected to cover scholarships for approximately 1,000 illegal immigrants who are now still in the country under the Obama-era DACA policy. "With a lot of grit and determination... my dad became an outstanding citizen, and he continues to give back to the country that he feels blessed him in so many ways". "MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today's Dreamers by funding these scholarships", he said. Almost 3,000 students are now part of TheDream.US program.
TheDream.US is the largest scholarship program in the country for participants in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program (DACA), who are often called Dreamers.
The first cohort of TheDream.US students will graduate from college in May. The scholarship helps Dreamers who might otherwise be unable to afford college.
