Stop Funneling Donations for Kids With Cancer Into the Trump Organization

Target: Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., Heads of the Trump Organization

Goal: Donate all funds from Eric Trump’s cancer charity golf events to the charities they were intended for.

Donors who gave money to the Eric Trump Foundation at charity golf events were told it would go to helping sick children, while in fact hundreds of thousands of those dollars ended up as revenue for the Trump Organization. According to Forbes magazine, “All of this seems to defy federal tax rules and state laws that ban self-dealing and misleading donors. It also raises larger questions about the Trump family dynamics and whether Eric and his brother, Don Jr., can be truly independent of their father.”

For a decade, the Eric Trump Foundation held charity events, supposedly for free, on Trump golf courses, allowing the Foundation to assure donors that their money went directly toward helping kids with cancer. However, expense reports show that the foundation began paying the Trump Organization–over $1.2 million cumulatively–despite Eric Trump’s continued claims that use of the course was free. According to 2 people who were involved, Donald Trump himself ordered the Trump Organization to begin billing the Eric Trump Foundation when he found out that the company had not been charging the charity.

Additionally, more than $500,000 was re-donated to completely different charities, many of which were connected to Trump family interests. Forbes said that the Donald J. Trump Foundation “apparently used the Eric Trump Foundation to funnel $100,000 in donations into revenue for the Trump Organization.” Sign below to demand that the Trump Organization return all of this money to the sick children who were robbed of it.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Eric Trump and Mr. Donald Trump Jr.,

The dishonesty and misuse of the money donated to the Eric Trump Foundation at cancer charity golf events is unlawful and unacceptable. Hundreds of thousands of dollars that became revenue for the Trump Organization were meant to be used to benefit sick children.

Donors were misled, and kids with cancer were deprived of the help those donors were trying to give, which could mean the difference between life and death. I urge you to ensure that the Trump Organization does what is right, and reimburses all of that money to the charity it was intended for.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Vile.

  2. If they have done this, this is a criminal offense and they should be prosecuted for their crimes.

  3. This guy who is a liar and a thief clearly considers himself above the law. Getting him out of office is taking too long.
