U.S. companies last year pledged to spend billions of dollars to help solve the country’s longstanding racial inequities. While companies typically publicized select pieces of information about their donations, a MarketWatch review of pledges made by Amazon Facebook Google and others in the wake of George Floyd’s murder found that none of these companies shared a complete public accounting of all of the recipients of their pledged money and the exact amounts each group received. MarketWatch contacted all of these companies for comment.
