The compliance document, filed with the Internal Revenue Service by Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life confirms that the nonprofit spent $332,000,000 in “grants and additional assistance to domestic organizations and domestic governments” during the 2020 election in order to “increase civic involvement by modernizing engagement between local government[ernment] and their people.”
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, and CEO announced Tuesday that he and his spouse donated $100 million more to a project called “safe elections” run by the Center for Technology and Civic Life. This brings their total contribution to that project to $350,000,000 since September 1. Critics claim that these grants for “local electoral administration” were really thinly disguised efforts to get out the vote for Democratic candidates, especially for Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee.
Biden was elected 46th President of America on January 20, 2021. A Joint Session on January 6, 2021, confirmed his victory in the Electoral College over Donald Trump in the November 3, 2020, general election.
On Wednesday, the CTCL filed Form 990 with the Internal Revenue Service for the period starting February 1, 2020, and ending January 31, 2021. This document revealed a more than $350,000,000 increase in contributions to the organization for 2020. In 2019, it received $2.8 million in contributions. In 2020, that number was more than $354 million.
Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan provided $350 million of the $354 million, according to Breitbart News in October 2020. This was just weeks before President Joe Biden’s general election against former President Donald Trump.
CTCL started the year with $1.8million in cash and ended the year with $15 million. It spent $332million in grants to local governments and municipalities throughout the country for “local elections administration”, $12 million on salaries, and more than $600,000.00 on legal fees.
Form 990 reports that $328.1 million, or $354 million, was contributed by one person. $21.1 million was donated by another individual (see page 2, Schedule B here). This makes a total contribution of $350,000,000 from two people the Form 990 didn’t identify.
CTCL has previously identified Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, and his wife Priscilla Chan in public statements. They were the two donors of $350 million.
The Capital Research Center has more information about the mechanisms Chan and Zuckerberg used to make $350 Million contributions to CTCL 2020.
New evidence has revealed that Zuckerberg funneled $328 Million through Silicon Valley Community Foundation. This foundation is the largest in America and a prominent donor to left-wing causes. Zuckerberg, who has contributed close to $2 billion to the foundation since 2010, is undoubtedly the largest single donor.
The CTCL’s Form 990 contains more than 130 pages of information about grant recipients. This document is the first to show the extent of the CTCL’s involvement with the “local election administration” during the 2020 election.
The Capital Research Center, Breitbart news, and other media outlets have gathered information from CTCL about their involvement in the 2020 elections. This was based on limited data provided by CTCL, combined with reports published in local news organizations. Capital Research Center stated that it published reports on CTCL spending from nine states: Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and North Carolina. It also noted that it had published reports in other states, including Wisconsin, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Michigan, Texas, North Carolina, and North Carolina. The Thursday report added that it expects those reports to be confirmed “in the coming weeks” once the CTCL’s Form990 has been reviewed.
In 2020, Zuckerberg and his wife contributed $69 million to another nonprofit, the Center for Election Integrity and Research.
The Amistad Project, Thomas More Society released a report on Wednesday that claimed Mark Zuckerberg and his spouse contributed $419.5 million to non-profit organizations in the 2020 election cycle. This included $350 million to the Center for Technology and Civic Life’s “Safe Elections” Project (CTCL) and $69.5 million to the Center for Election Innovation and Research. These contributions were made by Zuckerberg and his wife. They “improperly influenced” the 2020 presidential election for one candidate or party.
“The 2020 presidential elections witnessed an unprecedented public-private partnership that improperly influenced the 2020 election for one candidate or party.” In the executive summary, Phill Kline, Amistad Project Director, wrote that activist groups created a two-tiered electoral system that dealt with voters differently depending on where they live in Democrat strongholds or Republican strongholds. This was funded by several hundred million dollars from Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, and other high-tech companies.
The CTCL provided grants for local election administration to local governments. However, the CEIR provided voter information grants directly to 23 states. 22 went to the secretary-of-state’s office, while one went to a non-profit 501 (c).
