The city of Newark, N.J., will create an early childhood policy board using a $250,000 matching grant tied to the $100 million Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg donated to the city’s school system.
The latest and largest charitable donation by Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, will go to an organization a little closer to home, as Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook page that the Silicon Valley Community Foundation will receive 18 million Facebook shares.
After donation $100 million in Facebook stock, Mark Zuckerberg joined mayor Cory Booker at one of the schools in Newark, New Jersey. The mayor posted a number of photos of the event to his Flickr stream and we’ve embedded the slideshow of the event below. Unfortunately we don’t know what Mark discussed, however we can only guess that he was fielding questions from students about how to create the next Facebook.
