According to a CNBC report, a nonprofit financed by billionaire George Soros “quietly” contributed $140 million to political causes in 2021, along with another $60 million to “like-minded” charity groups.
According to CNBC, the Open Society Policy Center, a Soros-backed nonprofit within the Open Society Foundations network, gave at least $140 million to “politically charged nonprofit groups” one prior to the midterm elections, in addition to almost $60 million to charitable 501(c)(3)s that are not allowed to participate in politics.
The report detailed:
“According to a copy of its 2021 tax filing obtained by CNBC, Soros, who personally donated $170 million to Democratic candidates and campaigns during the 2022 midterms, distributed the additional funds through the Open Society Policy Center, which is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group that falls under the Soros-funded Open Society Foundations network. In addition, the Open Society Policy Center distributed around $138 million to advocacy groups and causes in 2020. Tax documents and its website show that two of Soros’ children are on its board.”
The report also reveals that the billionaire’s nonprofit donations do not necessarily go directly to political causes, but rather “may move from one of his organizations to another before being spent on the organizing, advertising, and social media operations that directly reach the voters.”
Furthermore, according to the report and the foundation’s website, much of the Open Society Policy Center’s 2021 contributions were not “earmarked” for any elections, but Tom Watson, an editorial director at Open Society Foundations, told CNBC differently.
In an email, Watson told CNBC that “there are absolutely some OSPC funding that went to organizations seeking to resist vote suppression, boost voter registration, and enhance civic involvement,” all of which are Democratic principles.
This would raise Soros’ total donations to political campaigns and causes since Jan. 2020 to at least $500 million.
Soros-funded organizations have funneled millions of dollars to many organizations that have worked to help illegal aliens evade deportation from the United States, organizations advocating for mass immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants, and organizations working to normalize and legalize prostitution.
