Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott donates $15M to Baltimore’s Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service

November 15, 2022

Billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott continues to make good on her promise to give away billions, donating $15 million to Baltimore-based Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service — the largest gift from an individual donor in the nonprofit’s 83-year history. The Lutheran nonprofit found out about the donation weeks ago but had to keep mum until Scott was ready to divulge the news. She did so on Monday in a post on Medium, an online publishing platform, where she said she has given $1.99 billion to 343 organizations “supporting the voices and opportunities of people from underserved communities.”
