  • Despite their surprise divorce announcement on Monday, Bill and Melinda Gates say they will continue to work together on their charitable foundation — which has spent nearly $2 billion alone on the fight against coronavirus.
  • Over the years, the organization has handed out billions in grant money for research and advocacy work, while also focusing on issues such as climate change and gender equality.
  • In 2008, Bill — who is worth an estimated $130 billion — left his day-to-day role at Microsoft, the company he co-founded, to devote more time to the foundation.
