Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan Donate $20 Million for Faster Internet in Schools

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan just can’t stop throwing money at schools to help children everywhere get the very best education possible.

In a Facebook post today, Zuckerberg announced that the power couple is donating $20 million to the Education Super Highway, a non-profit organization that helps public schools gain access to high-speed internet. The couple previously donated $3 million to the same organization in 2013.

Zuckerberg also discussed his philanthropic work in another post last week where he stated that his goals in his donations were to unlock human potential and promote equality. He ended the post explaining why the couple are so adamant about pushing for education:

“Soon we’re going to be parents, and we care deeply about doing everything we can so all children — not just ours — can grow up and achieve their full potential. We have a lot of work to do, so I’m glad we’re starting now.”
