Many of the financial backers to the far-left Gaza camp protests on US college campuses are also big donors to Joe Biden and other Democrat candidates and causes. "The donors include some of the biggest names in Democratic circles: Gates, Soros, Rockefeller and Pritzker," Politico reports in a new expose. Some of the major donors behind the organizations include left-wing mega-donors Bill Gates and Goeroge Soros.

Two of the groups that organized and supported the Gaza Camps at Columbia University and other colleges are Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and IfNotNow.

JVP was one of the organizations that protested a fundraiser with Biden and formers presidents Obama and Clinton at Radio City Music Hall earlier this year. The radical group has been active in organizing Gaza camp protests and events on college campuses and across the US in the aftermath of the Oct 7 attacks against Israel.

Both groups have well-documented ties to terrorist organizations and are supported by the Tides Foundation, which is funded by Democratic megadonor George Soros.

Politico’s analysis also revealed that the Tides Foundation was previously supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation told the outlet that it no longer has active grants to Tides and does not support JVP or IfNotNow. Gates has a history of backing left-wing causes including anti-gun initiatives and investing money into teaching kids that math is "white supremacy," as well as hypersexualized education for children.

Democratic donor David Rockefeller Jr., on the board of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, was revealed to be another backer. The fund gave $300,000 to the Tides Foundation in 2022 and Tides gave almost $500,000 over the past five years to groups that oppose Israel.

A foundation funded by Susan and Nick Pritzker, supporters of Biden and Democrats and heirs to Hyatt Hotels, was also identified as backers of the campus protests, many of which were led by outside agitators. A few months ago, the Pritzkers gave $6,600 to the Biden Victory Fund and over $300,000 during the 2020 campaign.

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund told Politico in a statement that it is not involved in the personal political giving of trustees.

Solidaire Action, a group that funds social justice activists has also received financial backing from the Pritzkers, who also founded the Libra Foundation, which funds nonprofits dedicated to reforming criminal justice, as well as environmental and gender causes.

According to Politico, some of the nonprofits funded by Libra have also been involved in anti-Israel actions including The Climate Justice Alliance, Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity, and the Immigrant Defense Project.

The Prtizkers also fund the Tides Foundation, which has supported the Adalah Justice Project, which has helped back the antisemitic encampment at Columbia University. The foundation has also sponsored Palestine Legal since 2013, and Adalah Justice Project since 2016. JVP and IfNotNow “are grantee partners,” a spokesperson told the outlet.

On Sunday, pundits slammed Politico’s headline, "Pro-Palestinian protesters are backed by a surprising source: Biden's biggest donors," as much of the info, especially the Soros connections, was reported by others months before.

The Tides Foundation added in a statement to Politico that it is “committed to advancing social justice,” adding its “community of fiscally sponsored projects, donors, and grantees represent a wide range of perspectives on what social justice looks like.”
