The philanthropy of George Soros has never quite hit the headlines as his work to help elect left leaning political candidates has in recent years, but Soros has made an even greater impact on philanthropy than he has through his political donations. The Open Society Foundations reports its founder, George Soros has given away a substantial amount of his own fortune to good causes in a charitable way, so far totaling more than $12 billion across a philanthropic career reported to have begun as far back as 1979; this compares favorably to the two major political contributions made to the Democratic during the course of the 21st century that occurred in 2004 and 2016 when George Soros felt the future of the entire world could be negatively affected by the emergence of extreme right wing policies being created by the advisors to President’s George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.
