As Black Lives Matter appears to be a grass roots, street based group, it has highly influential supporters with deep pockets. In 2016 The Washington Times reported on the millions of dollars in funding flooding into the organization:
Black Lives Matter has seen more than $100 million from liberal foundations and donations.
The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy recently announced the formation of the Black-Led Movement Fund [BLMF]. The $100 million fund is in addition to $33 million funding from George Soros.
“The BLMF provides grants, movement building resources, and technical assistance to organizations working advance the leadership and vision of young, Black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America,” said the Borealis announcement.
However, the foundation has also aligned itself with the staunch far-left group Movement for Black Lives. The group has called Israel an “apartheid state” guilty of “genocide.”
Their goals include defunding police departments, race-based reparations, voting rights for illegal immigrants, fossil-fuel divestment, an end to private education and charter schools, a “universal basic income,” and free college for blacks.
