Charities say they never received donations touted by Jeffrey Epstein: report

Source: The Hill


BY ZACK BUDRYK - 07/11/19 12:44 PM EDT 120

Numerous charities and hospitals financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was arrested on sex trafficking charges over the weekend, claimed to have showered with donations never received the funds, according to an NBC News investigation.

Press releases from Epsteinís Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation claimed he made donations to over 100 organizations after his 2008 plea deal, while Epstein has said he donated $30 million to Harvard University before the deal.

Federal tax filings, meanwhile, say Epsteinís foundation, Gratitude America Ltd., gave $1.84 million to charities between 2015 and 2017.

However, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, which maintains a database from 2006 of all major gifts over a million dollars, has no record of any gifts from Epstein, staff writer Maria DiMento told NBC News.

Remember how pissed tRump got when they challenged him on giving money that he raised for the veterans? He wouldn't give the money to them.

8. Not surprising

But if Epstein did give the money they would be rushing to give it back. Wouldn't want the bad publicity.
