Amazon CEO Bezos and wife donate $15M to Princeton
PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - Amazon.com Inc. founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, have donated $15 million to their alma mater, Princeton University, to create a new center in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute.
Princeton said Tuesday that the Bezos’ donation will go toward the Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics, which will work to build knowledge of the brain.
The center will look for treatments for neurological disorders, study how the brain works and how its operations affect behavior and investigate how children can learn effectively.
Both Jeff and MacKenzie attended Princeton as undergraduates. He graduated in 1986 and she in 1992.
