After Elon Musk announced he would be donating $30 Million to Cameron County, now two school districts have announced they’ve received a donation from the Elon Musk Foundation.

Last week Point Isabel ISD announced they’ve received a donation from Musk, but specifications about the amount and further details weren’t given at the time. Now the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School district has announced they’re received $1 million from Musk’s Foundation.

More information about Musk’s donation to Point Isabel ISD indicated that the donation received was about $123,000 and that Cameron County School District would receive one-fourth of the $20 million dollars Musk announced to be given to the Rio Grande Valley Schools.

SpaceX CEO also announced that he would be donating $10 million towards the renovation of Brownsville’s downtown, local leaders say they haven’t heard plans for that donation yet.
