Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Donates $992 Million to Charity Funding Planned Parenthood
Life News ^ | Christinia Martin

Posted on 02/13/2014 11:27:26 AM PST by Morgana

Philanthropy magazine released an article titled “A Look at the 50 Most Generous Donors of 2013.” Topping the list was Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, pediatrician Priscilla Chan.

In 2013 the couple donated 18 million shares of Facebook valued at $992.2 million to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in Mountain View, California. The couple previously donated 19 million Facebook shares to the same foundation in 2012.

markzuckerbergThe Silicon Valley Community Foundation describes its organization as a “comprehensive center of philanthropy.” They partner with donors to fund for profit and non-profit organizations around the globe. On their website you can see a list of words that describe the values of their company. The first word listed is “collaboration.”

This word summarizes the work of Silicon Valley Community; they work as a middle-man between donors and companies, making it easy for donors to get their funds into organizations they support. They accept a number of assets such as real estate, stock, and mutual funds and offer their donors customized philanthropy services.

One of the organizations Silicon Valley Community Foundation collaborates with is Planned Parenthood. A copy of their 2012 Public Disclosure is available for online viewing. The disclosure reports that the SVCF donated over $480,000 to Planned Parenthood in 2012 alone. The donations benefited Planned Parenthoods in multiple cities: San Antonio, TX; New York, NY; San Jose, CA; Jacksonville, FL; and Burlington, VT.The donations ranged in amount from $5,000 to $361,750.

Donations were earmarked under broad terms such as “health,” “supporting families,” and “building community.” The annual donations to Planned Parenthood have almost doubled from 2011, when the SVCF report shows that SVCF gave close to $250,000.

Although Zuckerberg hasn’t publicly commented on the programs their gift will support, he did say their philanthropy would focus on children. Zuckerberg and his wife have every right to spend their money as they see fit. I’m grateful that they are donating to assist children in need. I only hope none of their funds will end up in the big pockets of Planned Parenthood.

As for Silicon Valley Community Foundation, they should cut ties with the taxpayer-funded abortion giant and funnel donations into the hundreds of Pregnancy Resource Centers, Crisis Pregnancy centers and homes for mothers. The Silicon Valley Community Foundation currently has assets of $2.9 billion, more than 1,600 philanthropic funds under management and over 60 local nonprofit partners. One can only dream of the impact those resources could have if directed into pro-life, pro-family, pro-women organizations. Perhaps someone should write Zuckerberg a letter.

Planned Barrenhood results in less people being born who could eventually use Facebook. His “charitable donations” are bad for his company’s bottom line.

The poor kid is not quite 30 years old and is down to his last 30 billion dollars.

Step 1. Donate untold $$ to import tens of millions of Mexicans.

Step 2. Donate nearly a $ billion to an organization which has killed millions of black babies.

What do Zuckerberg’s actions suggest he thinks of the relative worth of black Americans vs. Mexicans? What is he trying to accomplish with this wholesale population replacement?

The first time I read the headline, I thought the money was going straight to Planned Parenthood. It is not.

Basically, it is like giving money to Susan Komen or frankly, half the corporations (Home Depot, Procter and Gamble, Aetna) in the Fortune 500.

I don’t like it, but the end result will likely be that PP gets a few hundred thousand more. Which is bad, but not nearly as bad as the nearly $1 billion a cursory reading of the headline implies.

I cannot boycott facebook because I have never enrolled.

I get those same annoying advertisements, but thankfully nothing to do with murdering babies..why is it that abortion lovers have themselves not been aborted..let’s see them getting themselves sucked out with a device and thrown in the trash and see how they like it

Komen is the worst people to give money to. Abortion can cause breast cancer and we have known this for a long time. The bulk of Planned Parenthood is abortion. More than that if I give my money to one organization I don’t expect them in turn to turn around and give it to another. I expect it to stay where I gave it. So if I give it to fight breast cancer that money should be going to people who are only finding ways to fight and finding ways to cure breast cancer. Nothing more nothing less.

Is that too much to ask?

Sick of the whole concept of posting personal crap and then some left-wing nutcase a-hole profiting off it.

This is the trap of Silicon Valley.
Lots of CEO’s have cratered their companies and fortunes by not concentrating on their companies.

No, it is not too much to ask. My point was simply that giving $100 to Komen is not giving $100 to PP, it is more like giving 25 cents (if that) to PP. Zuckerburg thonks he is doing well, and probably doesn’t care that some of the money goes to PP. That is not the same as the Berkshire-Hathaway guy who is going to give most of his money to PopCon by design when he eventually dies.

PP should be a pariah, but they are not. It is pretty much impossible to avoid distant and indirect cooperation with evil. Let’s say you only eat ChikFilA. Well, they get their chicken from 160 sources, some of whom give PP money. If their paper (napkins, bags) supplier is Scott, more of the same. It doesn’t make them bad. It just means that the Lord of the World and his servants have wormed their way through much of the social and economic fabric of this country.

No. I thought the population being replaced might take notice, though.

Those who cannot make the most of life are often greedy fruit squeezing rich boys doing hypocrite “philantropy” that destroys the fruits of their competitors or ration them from life.

Those who cannot make most of life are angry God only gave them a lot and not eternal life. Thus they resort to parasitic lives possessing other people’s lives, namely children here.

This stubbornness in not learning is a rejection of truths and inheritable fruits. Hell to embrace indeed.
