What is Melinda Gates’ net worth?

Melinda Gates is the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. According to the foundation’s website, she “shapes and approves strategies, reviews results, and sets the organization’s overall direction. She works with grantees and partners to further the foundation’s goals.”

The soon-to-be ex-wife of the Microsoft founder is worth $70billion, according to Spear’s.

Bill Gates said the couple decided to “end our marriage” after a “great deal of thought and a lot of work” – two years after the couple marked their 25th wedding anniversary and his wife admitted marital life was “really hard.”

He noted that they had raised “three incredible children” and worked to help people all over the world.

“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives,” Gates wrote.
