Back in February, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced his Bezos Earth Fund, a $10 billion USD fund aimed at fighting climate change, and now he’s announced the first round of recipients via Instagram. The first batch includes 16 different environmental organizations which will receive a combined $791 million USD, although Bezos did not reveal how much money was going to each of them individually.

The entire list of beneficiaries so far include: The Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund, ClimateWorks Foundation, Dream Corps Green For All, Eden Reforestation Projects, Energy Foundation, Environmental Defense Fund, The Hive Fund for Climate and Gender Justice, Natural Resources Defense Council, The Nature Conservancy, NDN Collective, Rocky Mountain Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, The Solutions Project, Union of Concerned Scientists, World Resources Institute, and World Wildlife Fund.

“I’ve spent the past several months learning from a group of incredibly smart people who’ve made it their life’s work to fight climate change and its impact on communities around the world,” Bezos writes in his statement on Instagram. “I’m inspired by what they’re doing, and excited to help them scale… We can all protect Earth’s future by taking bold action now.”
