Steve Ballmer, the owner of the LA Clippers Club, raised money to help Los Angeles cope with the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ballmer Group, founded by Los Angeles Clippers boss Steve Ballmer, will donate US $ 1 million to community-based associations in the city of Los Angeles amid the global outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic with unpredictable developments.
Corona virus is raging around the world in general and the United States in particular. In the NBA, many players and owners have donated money for disease prevention as well as helping low-income workers in the context of unemployment, and Steve Ballmer is the latest to take action.
The Los Angeles County Office of Education and the Los Angeles Unified School District confirm they have received a $ 250,000 Ballmer grant from each agency. They will use the money to distribute supplies such as food, diapers, formula, medical supplies and urgent needs to students and families.
The Ballmer Group also contributes US $ 100,000 to the homeless and US $ 150,000 to low-income workers. A spokesman for the group said it was still looking for the right address to support the remaining $ 250,000.
Before supporting the Los Angeles community, Ballmer contributed up to US $ 3 million to a Seattle charity to help patients infected with Corona Virus. In total, he and the Ballmer Group have donated at least $ 4 million during the COVID-19 pandemic. The former CEO of Microsoft Corporation is the owner of the largest NBA fortune with more than 51 billion USD. He acquired the Los Angeles Clippers for $ 2 billion in 2014 after the NBA forced Donald Sterling to sell the team.
