The Deep Philanthropic Pockets of George Soros

George Soros’ upbringing in Hungary failed, and his family had to send him to New York to grow up. It was not their fault he had to leave as a political refugee. The Nazi Regime had literally made it illegal to be Jewish, and his father had been imprisoned for that unavoidable crime. His experience in Hungary, however, deeply entrenched a value and moral in the economic phenom, liberalism. George Soros is exactly what so many honest and phony politicians, all alike, like to brand themselves, a liberal mind. He is a liberal in conviction and persuasion. He has stronger political persuasions than most Democrats and Republicans holding political offices in Washington. However, George Soros has never pursued any political ambitions. His lack of interest in power accentuates his influence as the people appreciate him for having their interests truly at heart.

George Soros is globally famous for his deep pockets and wide business networks. He has an undisputed talent in wealth and opportunity creation. He also enjoys uttermost good faith from most of his business prospects who love him for the honest revenue he generates and his philanthropic spirit. He seems to have a deep understanding of the value of human dignity and is hence a very charitable gentleman. His compassion for the oppressed and the persecuted manifests in his liaison with lobby groups, charitable organizations, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations, and international bodies to counter vices that demean human freedom or infringe on fundamental rights of humans. He seeks to emancipate the weak and the vulnerable through systematic funding of the right groups of people to concert efforts of remedy.

As a currency trader, George Soros has accumulated so many riches that he could never lack money for his philanthropic persuasions. Over the last thirty years, as Politico reports, the economist has committed and yielded over 13 billion dollars to political and social causes. Such generosity is unparalleled by anyone in his career. The good thing, he can afford it. A brilliant mind that was keen enough to observe the social and economic trends of Europeans from America back in 1992 is incapable of running into tough financial times. According to the Washington Times, George Soros speculated a rise in the value of dollars and predicted the Black Wednesday of the United Kingdom. In one day, he moved to sell ten billion dollars and made a one billion dollar profit. Since then, the man has always been referred to as the man who broke the bank of the United Kingdom.

Some of the lobby groups that Soros sponsors have been at the forefront of unseating dictators. He has funded the Independent Diplomat personally. The Independent Diplomat is largely responsible for the liberalization of Kosovo. He has also been an official sponsor for the Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy. Previously, he had dedicated more than the ten million dollars he spent on Clinton’s campaign to oppose George Bush’s bid for the presidency. He has been at the forefront of financing the Black Lives Matter Campaign and the Ferguson protests that were opposing police brutality and racial profiling. The protests had been a violent reaction to the extrajudicial killing of an 18-year-old unarmed black boy. George Soros turned the unlawful lawless, violent reactions to a powerful and organized response to the plight of the Black Community caused by reckless and unlawful policing.

Bruce Levenson Seeds ‘Do Good Initiative’ at University of Maryland.

Bruce Levenson is the former owner of the Atlanta Hawks — one of the premier franchises in the NBA and the Eastern Conference, http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/11493472/jason-whitlock-bruce-levenson-atlanta-hawks. Levenson helped to guide the Hawks to the Eastern Conference finals before deciding to sell the team in 2014. Now Levenson has set his eyes on growing the entrepreneurial spirit and the role of philanthropy in the world of higher education. Levenson has become an integral part of the Do Good Institute — an initiative that is growing out of the University of Maryland. Let’s take a look inside of one of Maryland’s most exciting new initiatives to see just what is going down on campus.

According to PR Newswire, the Do Good Institute is an initiative that is focused on helping to turn the University of Maryland into one of the premier philanthropy-focused campuses in the country. The second goal of the initiative is to help create and promulgate some of the future philanthropic leaders in the business world. Bruce Levenson of course knows the value of being both a philanthropist and a business man, so he had to get his hands involved. Bruce Levenson donated $75 million to help seed the initiative and the state of Maryland chipped in their own $20 million to help get the initiative rolling. The first class that students can partake in is Philanthropy 101, which gets students to examine and dole out $10,000 for a cause of their choice.

Bruce Levenson got involved due to his sheer belief in the concept. Levenson spoke in a statement by saying, “What we’ve been able to do at Maryland is reveal ways in which people through their time, through their ingenuity, can build incredible things.” Levenson went on to praise the ascent of ‘alternative education’, which is what the Do Good Initiative falls under. We expect the Do Good Institute to continue growing.
