  9月14日,据CNBC消息,亚马逊CEO杰夫·贝索斯周四宣布,已推出20亿美元的“第一日基金”,以帮助无家可归的家庭并创建幼儿园。

  “麦肯齐与我分享了对任何人努力为他人服务的潜力的信念,”贝索斯在一条推文中说,指的是他的妻子麦肯齐贝索斯。

  “该基金将以20亿美元的承诺启动,分为Day 1 Families Fund - 帮助无家可归的家庭 - 和Day 1 Academies Fund - 在低收入社区建立新的,非营利的一级幼儿园。”贝索斯说。

  作为亚马逊的首席执行官,火箭公司Blue Origin的创始人和华盛顿邮报的所有者,贝佐斯是现代历史上最富有的人,净资产至少为1500亿美元。

  批评者长期以来一直呼吁他将数十亿美元用于慈善事业。今年6月,贝佐斯戏称他确定了未来慈善事业的两个重点领域。

  以下为贝索斯声明的全文:

  I talk often about the importance of maintaining a Day 1 mentality. It's always Day 1, and I work hard to aPPly that mindset to everything I do. It was a Day 1 outlook that made me reach out to ask for suggestions on approaches to philanthropy last year. By so many important measures the world keeps getting better, and it's one of the fantastic aspects of human nature that we humans never stop looking for (and finding!) ways to improve things. Our lives are better than our great grandparents' lives, and their lives were better than their great grandparents' lives before them. If our own great grandchildren don't have lives better than ours, something has gone very wrong.Where's the good in the world, and how can we spread it? Where are the opportunities to make things better?These are exciting questions.

  MacKenzie and I share a belief in the potential for hard work fromanyoneto serve others. We all have that capacity. Business innovators who invent products that empower, authors who write books that inspire, government officials who serve their communities, teachers, doctors, carpenters, entertainers who make us laugh and cry, parents who raise children who go on to live lives of compassion, and many more. In addition to Amazon my areas of focus so far have included investment in the future of our planet and civilization through the development of foundational space infrastructure, support of American democracy through stewardship of the Washington Post, and financial contributions to the dedicated and innovative champions of a variety of causes, from cancer research, to marriage equality, to college scholarships for immigrant students, to decreasing political polarization through cross-partisan support of principled, next-generation military vets running for Congress.

  We're excited today to announce the Bezos Day One Fund. It will begin with a commitment of $2 billion and focus on two areas: funding existing non-profits that help homeless families, and creating a network of new, non-profit, tier-one preschools in low-income communities.

  The Day 1 Families Fund will issue annual leadership awards to organizations and civic groups doing compassionate, needle-moving work to provide shelter and hunger support to address the immediate needs of young families. The vision statement comes from the inspiring Mary's Place in Seattle: no child sleeps outside.

  The Day 1 Academies Fund will launch and operate a network of high-quality, full-scholarship, Montessori-inspired preschools in underserved communities. We will build an organization to directly operate these preschools. I'm excited about that because it will give us the opportunity to learn, invent, and improve. We'll use the same set of principles that have driven Amazon. Most important among those will be genuine, intense customer obsession. The child will be the customer. "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." And lighting that fireearlyis a giant leg up for any child.

  I want to close by thanking everyone who sent me suggestions, and for the inspiring examples of innovation I see every day, large and small. It fills me with gratitude and optimism to be part of a species so bent on self-improvement.

  It remains Day 1!

  Jeff
