Largest U.S. Christian Charity Reportedly Donated $56.1 Million to Hate Groups – The Intellectualist
According to Newsweek, National Christian Foundation, which is the largest Christian Charity in the U.S., donated $56.1 million to hate groups from 2015 to 2017. The foundation, which identifies as one of the largest donor-advised funds in the country, has become a vehicle which allows individuals to anonymously send money.
With donor-advised funds, people can send tax deductible contributions which will remain anonymous from the IRS. Many payments that have gone through NCF have been gifted to 23 organizations labeled as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most of the groups opposed LGBT rights, and the NCF also donated to anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant organizations.
Alliance Defending Freedom is one of the organizations which has received the most money from NCF. The Alliance advocates for sterilizing transgender people. Another organization receiving notable amounts of funding from the NCF is the Family Research Council, which advocates for conversion therapy.
