George Soros: Politically Engaged Philanthropist

In the United States, electioneering period is marked by championing for more than just political leaders. Elections also come with the several issues and initiatives on the ballot paper that voters are expected to cast their vote on. Consequently, the well-oiled campaign machines financed by rich business moguls and organizations are not confined to campaigning for political offices. Offices such as those of district attorneys and social, political, environmental and economic initiatives and policies are also voted on. According to Politico, George Soros has actively financed candidates during electioneering period to promote and safeguard ideals that he holds to be true.  Additionally, he has actively supported causes and candidates that are proponents of policy reforms and promotion of education among others.

During the 2016 elections, the wealthy tycoon pumped up to $25 million dollars in the Democratic Party presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton’s campaign machinery. This was a continuation of his tradition of financing Democratic candidates during elections; a tradition he only broke during the 2008 presidential elections. While a huge portion of these funds were donated directly to Clinton’s campaign machine, some were also channeled to Democratic Party super Political Action Committees (PACs). Additionally, Politico noted that several Democrats vying for various positions also benefited from the donations. George Soros commitment to democratic ideals saw him further donate millions of dollars to fight efforts by President Trump to rollback several initiatives by his predecessors, Barack Obama including the landmark Afford Care Act (Obama Care).

George Soros: Silently Revolutionizing American Justice and Political Systems

George Soros is a strong believer in reforming the U.S justice system. His beliefs were reflected when he donated millions of dollars to finance the campaigns of district attorneys who are committed to reforming the justice system. Mainly minority candidates, these candidates were vying on a reform platform aimed at tackling the racial bias in sentencing for certain crimes. The funds were channeled through local super PACs to finance campaign adverts in specific states such as Arizona. He has also supported democratic causes and initiatives such as creation of voter awareness and mobilization with the view of increasing voter turnout during elections.

Philanthropic Activities

George Soros is passionate about social issues plaguing various communities not only in the United States but the world over. One such issue that many countries including the U.S has had to contend with is refugees and immigrants. According to Politico, Soros set $500 million in financial aid to create businesses not only for immigrants but also the host communities where they settle in. He hopes his good gesture will spur others to follow suit. The funds will complement the efforts of his foundation and will be used to setup companies across several industries.
