Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are to donate USD 5 million to TheDream.US, a fund which finances the education of undocumented immigrants.

“We ought to welcome smart and hardworking young people from every nation, and to help everyone in our society achieve their full potential. If we help more young immigrants climb the ladder to new opportunities, then our country will make greater progress,” Zuckerberg wrote.
His donation will enable as many as 400 immigrants to attend college in the San Francisco Bay Area. Zuckerberg said he wishes that the money will help to these young people pursue meaningful careers that will bring them overall well-being.
