Zuckerberg And Wife To Donate 99% Of Their Facebook Shares - About $45 Billion - To Charity
December 2, 2015
In announcing their daughter's birth on Dec. 1, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan also pledged to donate 99% of their Facebook stock - worth about $45 billion - to promote equality and the human potential.
The couple first announced the pregnancy in July with an unusually personal post on Facebook. Zuckerberg revealed he and Chan had three miscarriages, and said he hoped talking about the experience would help others going through the same thing.
Zuckerberg drew attention again in November when he announced he would take two months of paternity leave. The choice was surprising for a highly visible CEO, and could set a positive example for other parents working in high-stress jobs.
Facebook has long offered its U.S. employees four months of parental leave. Last week, it announced it was extending paternal leave to four months for all male Facebook employees around the world.
