It;s a lot more then $100K. I believe at least $500K or more. I'll see if anyone else can confirm the figures or If I can find it I will post. It was no small amount of money and effort being spent to placate the PUSHy people.

Among the 2001 benefactors of the 20-year-old education fund who were at one time either threatened with boycotts by or were "in discussion with" Mr. Jackson were AT&T ($300,000), Burger King ($100,000), Coca Cola ($50,000), McDonald's ($100,000), NASCAR ($150,000), SBC Communications ($152,950) and United Parcel Service ($55,000).
The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, which is not tax exempt, reported 2001 revenue of $5.2 million, about the same as in 2000. Its income includes $1.1 million in contributions in 2001, down from $1.3 million in 2000. The source of donations to for-profit corporations is not subject to tax-disclosure laws.
