Jeff Bezos is donating $33 million to help undocumented immigrants

Jeff Bezos is donating $33 million to a scholarship fund for "dreamers," immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Bezos will support TheDream.Us, a program that aims to help dreamers who often don't qualify for federal financial aid or in-state tuition, graduate from college.

The program partners with 74 colleges and universities, including George Mason University, University of Washington, Hunter College, Rutgers University, Arizona State University, The City College of New York, and University of California, Santa Cruz.  Read more...More about Microsoft, Amazon, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Philanthropy ...
