How Much is Priscilla Chan Worth?
It’s not a secret that Priscilla Chan net worth comes from her marriage. The wife of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla owns astonishing $50 billion. What would you do, if you have such a solid wealth? Would you spend most part of your time in SPA saloons? Would you go for vacation to some exotic country? Would you buy several classy cars?
It is hard to believe, but Mrs. Zuckerberg is not interested in such things. Her clothes are simple, her shoes cost less than 600, and her wedding dress had never been included in the list of top most expensive dresses in the world. So, what is Priscilla Chan interested in? And what does she spend her husband’s money for?
Why Does Priscilla Chan Need Mark Zuckerberg Money?
Priscilla and Mark tied the knot on the 19th of May, 2012. Their wedding ceremony was silent and very simple. Paparazzi were not chasing the young couple and the most famous celebs’ photographers weren’t making beautiful photos for magazine covers. Zuckerberg fans knew about the change of his marital status through Facebook, where he changed it for “Married”. That day Priscilla got not just congratulations and compliments from Facebook users, but also bitter remarks about her changing marital status for “Jackpot”.
In fact, Priscilla Chan really needs Mark Zuckerberg money, but not for brand clothes, mansions or cars. The billionaire’s wife spends millions of dollars per charity. It was she, who convinced Mark to create Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the charity company, which spends billions of dollars, which come from Facebook Inc, to open schools, hospitals and support interesting science projects.
Due to Mrs. Zuckerberg’s initiative, Facebook workers have a paid parental vacation. She donated about $18 million to the hospital in San Francisco, where she worked.
As you see, Mark Zuckerberg’s wife spends his wealth left and right. But not for things, which most of people dream to get, if they become rich. “I try to support right values”, Priscilla Chan says.
