Southern Poverty Law Center Transfers Millions In Cash To Offshore Entities

Submitted by: trimble 3 months ago in News & Politics


Tax-exempt charitable organization pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show.

An excerpt from the Free Beacon: The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its "hate group" designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show.

Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of "fighting hate and bigotry" using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is perhaps best known for its "hate map," a collection of organizations the nonprofit deems "domestic hate groups" that lists mainstream conservative organizations alongside racist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and is often referenced in the media. A gunman opened fire at the Washington, D.C., offices of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 after seeing it listed as an "anti-gay" group on SPLC's website.

Not really breaking news.  This has been known since the 1980's

"Left-wing nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to top management"

Ya. And?

The CEO of the Red Cross makes $1,000,000+ per year.

The CEO of the United Way makes $1,200,000+ per year.

The CEO of the NRA makes $4,600,000+ per year. (Keep sending those dues suckers)

holygod The source article is some right wing nonsense trying to attack the SPLC and spread misinformation.  Classic selective propaganda.

holygod Of course the people  that rely on these don't look at the sources or other 5013c and see  that almost  every charity does similar actions.  Instead if it has anything to do with Liberal it's bad.

Calling the Family Research Council a "mainstream conservative organization" is a joke.

How many families have lost a child to suicide because they believed FRC's lies about gay conversion therapy?

How many families have lost a gay child to suicide because of the lies they were told about themselves by the FRC?

How many gay children have been beaten or tormented at school because of families that teach their kids FRC's lies about gay people?

How many families have kicked their gay child to the street because of FRC's lies about gay people?

How many gay adult siblings have been kicked out of families because of the FRC?

How many uncles never get to spend time with their nieces and nephews because of the FRC's lies about gay people being all pedophiles?

The Family Research Council is anything but family. They earned every bit of their hate group designation.

markust123 Maybe it is a Mainstream Conservative Organization to Conservatives?  If so, it just further  shows how far they have fallen.

Not uncommon.

While the arrangement — which can involve investments of hundreds of millions of dollars — has come under periodic scrutiny in Congress, it is perfectly legal. And officials of several of the organizations say they are trying only to get the most out of their donors' contributions.

The article is an anti liberal rag that wants to play the demonization game.  

Could they be doing something untoured with the money?  Sure, but scant details about deals with no proof is nothing more than gossip.

scheckydamon depends on what they are doing?  It's the charities money so as long as they are upfront about their dealings I don't really care.

We have to hold feet to the fire when it is something serious but this article doesn't address any of those points, it's gossip.
