Joe Biden has long used his personal tragedies to further his aspirations. His wife’s battles with cancer gave Joe the great idea to start a group that raised money to end the disease (spoiler: cancer hasn’t been eradicated yet).
Perhaps worse than that, is what Joe did after the death of his son, Beau. He started a charity in his son’s name aimed at “progress and prosperity for American families.”
The group was shut down in 2020. But people are asking questions about what it did when it was still in operation. In its final year, the charity pulled in millions of dollars. One website started doing some digging. And, it turns out, very little of that money went to help children.
From New York Post:
The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children raked in $3.9 million in 2020, but spent only a fraction of that on its purported mission to help kids, The Post has learned.
The Delaware-based charity, which was started in honor of President Biden’s late son, got an infusion of $1.8 million from the Biden Foundation before that group shut down in 2020…
Despite the $2 million-plus windfall, the organization put only $544,961 in 2020 toward its stated purpose of protecting children from abuse, according to tax filings.
How interesting. The Beau Biden Foundation raised a reported $3.9 million in 2020, its final year. Yet, according to tax filings, it only spent a little over $500,000 (around ¼ of the money) on helping children. The group spent a total of $932,865 in 2020, most of it going to six-figure salaries of Biden’s buddies, who had cushy jobs at the charity.
According to some reports, successful non-profits spend at least 75% of their budgets on programs that help people. Some spend considerably more. But Biden’s group spent just 58% of its cash on its cause. In 2020, it was even less than that. And since the group shut down in 2020, where did the rest of that $3.9 million go?
Oh, and let’s not forget that Hunter Biden served on the board of this charity. Other family members, including Beau’s family, were also on the board. Is the picture coming in clear? We are only getting bits and pieces of the situation, but it certainly raises plenty of questions. Why wasn’t more money spent on helping children? Where did the rest of the money go?
