The couple founded their philanthropic organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in 2000.

“We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement says. “We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can growth together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”

The foundation did not immediately return a request for comment from CNN Business.
