Without stronger giving policies, national charities will continue to funnel money to hate groups.
A charitable nonprofit linked to Fidelity Investments has donated at least $100,000 to the New Century Foundation, the organization behind white nationalist publication American Renaissance, since mid-2015.
The Foundation for the Carolinas says it “supports the needs of immigrants” but gave $1.9 million to the Center for Immigration Studies, which promotes white nationalist ideas, from 2015-18.
More than 20 philanthropists, foundations, and donor-advised fund providers launched their “Hate Is Not Charitable” campaign on March 20.
Four giant donor-advised funds gave the hate group Clarion Project $4.4 million from mid-2014 through 2017.
