Leftist Billionaire MacKenzie Scott Doubled Pledge To Open Border, Pro-Trans Nonprofits

Share

MacKenzie Scott, the billionaire novelist who founded Amazon with her now ex-husband, Jeff Bezos, doubled a recent philanthropic pledge to non-profits with $640 million donated across more than 360 small groups. Some groups appear to be generic charities with well-meaning missions that transcend ideological politics, such as feeding the hungry. Most, however, are overwhelmingly dedicated to far-left causes with programs designed to promote “equity” in areas of climate change, immigration, and transgenderism.

Last year, Scott, a billionaire philanthropist who briefly became the richest woman in the world upon her 2019 divorce, issued an “open call” for community non-profits to solicit contributions from her. Scott thanked Lever for Change, the group facilitating the donation spree, in a statement Tuesday.

“From a pool of over 6,000 applicants, each of these 361 community-led non-profits was elevated by peer organizations and a round-2 evaluation panel for their outstanding work advancing the voices and opportunities of individuals and families of meager or modest means, and groups who have met with discrimination and other systemic obstacles,” Scott said. “Grateful to Lever for Change and everyone on the evaluation and implementation teams for their roles in creating this pathway to support for people working to improve access to foundational resources in their communities.”

The statement posted to Yield Giving, Scott’s organization to distribute her personal fortune, includes a list of groups that received large sums of money from the billionaire’s donation campaign. Groups include non-profit enterprises whose names make clear they are committed to far-left visions of social justice. These include: “Black Girl Ventures,” the “Center for Black Women’s Wellness,” and “Collective Power for Reproductive Justice,” which is a coalition of abortion activists.

A group called Openhouse, which “enables San Francisco Bay Area LGBTQ+ seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age,” was listed as a contribution recipient. Another San Francisco group that received funds is the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco. The Chinese Community Center based in Houston was also a named recipient. While neither group has been found with links to the Chinese Communist Party, the FBI busted a trio of similar institutions promoting Chinese culture, two of which were located in San Francisco and Houston, as operations run by Beijing last year.

Other beneficiaries of Scott’s funding spree were the Pacific Center for Human Growth and OutFront Minnesota, which offer pro-trans programming for “youth.” The Pacific Center is sponsored by Planned Parenthood and hosts a “Trans Tweens Group” for “gender creative” youth.

“This space was created for trans and gender creative tweens to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential space, knowing that finding spaces that are both gender affirming and youth-friendly can be challenging,” the Pacific Center’s website reads. “The Trans Tween Group is a fun, supportive, caring space that invites folx to be themselves.”

OutFront Minnesota holds an annual summit for “2SLGBTQIA+ and allied high school aged youth in Minnesota.”

The group “Gender Justice,” an organization committed to “protecting access to health care for transgender and nonbinary youth,” also received a contribution from Scott’s campaign. Gender Justice promoted a $2 million gift on the organization’s website.

Far-left climate interests were also named as beneficiaries. The group, “Native Renewables,” received a Scott contribution operating with a “mission to grow Indigenous-led solar power knowledge and solutions.” Scott also donated to the California Environmental Voters Education Fund, the Central California Environmental Justice Network, and the New Mexico Environmental Law Center.

Several groups to receive funds from Scott’s philanthropy spree are committed to procuring left-wing border policies, such as the Florida Immigrant Coalition, which brands itself as an “immigrant rights movement for all.” Scott’s list also includes the Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants, the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, and the Building One Community – The Center for Immigrant Opportunity (B1C). Each group offers services aimed at bringing more immigrants to the country as states and cities struggle to handle the current influx of people crossing the border.
