Charles Koch Donates Millions To Universities Every Year But It Seems He Has A Favorite

It’s safe to say Charles Koch is in the news almost every day. His opinions, influence, and business dealings, as well as donations, are media favorites. Let’s face it. If Charles Koch coughs more than once, it is reported by the press, and that reporting may not be all fact. Koch is one of the country’s wealthiest people, and normal people want to know what wealthy people do, and say. They also want to know how they spend their money. Koch likes to spend some of his money on higher education. In fact, he donates more than $20 million every year to Universities. One University, George Mason University, received $48 million in three years from Koch, and that, of course, is headline news.

George Mason University is a conservation institution. And Koch’s influence is peppered all over that school. Koch supporters and former employees are heavily involved with the George Mason University, and that has raised some eyebrows. Koch intentions have been in question because it seems his generosity is masking some hidden agenda, according to an article published by Yahoo.com.

The reason for all the talk about Koch’s generosity toward George Mason is, in 2014, the Koch Foundation gave $16.8 million to the school’s Institute for Humane Studies. That donation accounted for more than a three-quarters of the money George Mason gets from private sources. The Council for Aid to Education published a report that said George Mason University received $44.6 million in 2013, from outside donations.

The fact that the Koch Foundation wants to continue to give more money to George Mason University became obvious recently when the George Mason Law School got a $10 million gift from the Koch Foundation and a $20 million gift from another donor that remained anonymous. Those gifts were given so the school would be renamed after the Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a well-known conservative. Receiving $30 million to achieve one particular mission was called a milestone moment for the school, according to George Mason University President Angel Cabrear.

President Cabrear makes no apologies for the Koch Foundation donations. Koch is a welcomed contributor that has done a lot for the university, and the president welcomes how Koch wants to direct how his donations are spent. Koch donations have changed George Mason University, and the positive impact Koch has on the American political system, according to school President Cabrear.
