Planned Parenthood North Central receives $20 million

PIERRE, S.D. – Planned Parenthood North Central States has received $20 million from billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. It’s the largest donation in the organization’s history.

North Central States operates 28 facilities in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska.

Sarah Stoesz, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood North Central States, says the donation brings tremendous relief because costs of providing care are going up.

Scott has donated nearly $4 billion to 465 nonprofits, including $275 million to Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Scott is the former wife of Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos.
