Amazon has made contributions to open source in many ways, including bug fixes, spending hundreds of thousands/year to sponsor conferences, and even giving the PostgreSQL community a free testing account to run regression, soak, or functionality test suites on AWS for free. So yes, Amazon contributes cash to open source projects, at least to PostgreSQL, which we find to be a wonderful community that we are proud to be part of.

How much cash did AWS give to Postgres?
