MacKenzie Scott has done it again!

The billionaire philanthropist has donated $281 million to Boys & Girls Clubs throughout America with some of that money going to the Boys & Girls Club of the Mississippi Delta, the Boys & Girls Club of the Golden Triangle, and the Boys & Girls Club of Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

While the amount going to the Mississippi clubs is undisclosed, Scott’s donation is still the largest collective gift in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 160-year history.

“Gifts like this are rare and have incredible impact. It’s a historic moment for our organization and the Clubs that received MacKenzie Scott’s significant support,” Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, said. “We know now, more than ever, that with the right support system, positive mentorship and opportunities, kids can thrive. Thanks to this generous gift, Boys & Girls Clubs can continue to reach even more youth, as we guide millions of kids and teens on their journeys to great futures.”
