Gates ‘Charity’ Gives Money To His Pals

Our old friend Dan Riehl at Riehl World View has uncovered an interesting detail about Mr. Gates.

He has his very own personal tax supported 501c3 ‘charity,’ which he operates out of his own (or rather Harvard’s own) house.

From Inkwell’s 2007 Form 990 (a pdf file):

(Click images to enlarge.)

Here is the Inkwell Foundation’s  ‘mission statement’:

The purpose of the foundation is to provide grants to other charitable organizations and to promote programs that educate the general public and encourage academic interest regarding African and African-American literature, art, history, and culture.

To that noble end they have raised $205,543 in 2007 alone.

But as you can see, only $27,500 of this money has actually been expended.

As Mr. Riehl rightly notes, the money somehow seems to have found its way to Mr. Gates employees and friends – pretty much exclusively.

All but four of the ‘grants’ that were doled out during 2007 were for the paltry sum of $500. (It’s hard to see how much scholarship that can buy.)

The larger grants, however, seem to have gone to Mr. Gates’ inner circle, with the largest – at $10,000 – having gone to his very own personal assistant, Joanne Kendall:

The next largest grant ($6,000) appears to have gone to an apparent Gates’ friend, Angela Deleon.

One of the two $1,000 grants was given to Dell Hamilton, who reportedly worked for Mr. Gates as an Events coordinator for the Dubois Institute at Harvard.

One of the $500 recipients, Nancy Brigham Cyr , also seems to have worked for Gates, as an administrator.

Mr. Riehl has found several more friends and former employees of Gates on the list of grantees.

Perhaps this is yet another ‘teachable moment.’

In any case, we fully expect our watchdog media to ferret out the rest of the details about this somewhat suspicious set of circumstances.

Any minute now.

    It’s like a little whiff of Chicago on the Hahvad Yard, isn’t it.

    But where did the rest of the $205,543 go to?

    Not to Mr Gates, certainly. He can’t even afford a spare key to leave with a neighbor in case he forgets his.

    And based on the rap sheets of Obamy’s other “friends”, there would seem to be pretty strong odds that this little criminal enterprise isn’t the worst thing Mr. Gates has done in his life.

    Maybe it’s me but the donations all went to females who worked for him at one time or another. (does Jesse Jackson paying off a woman who he sired a child with and paying her hush money with his tax fee money ring a bell) I also find it ironic that he says it is for the general public too! But no where does a John Q. Publics’ name appear.
    Did an ACORN just fall from the tree?

    I’d say that the people who donated to this sham 501c3 should be informed but it’s just a bunch of other libtards looking for tax deductions. Who else would donate to this con artist. They have set up these sham ethno study programs all over the country as a cover for their subversive activities and need to be exposed. This is despicable. These same people have the guts to criticize CEOs who get bonuses and other perks. Amazing!!!

    The o-blah-blah circle of aquaintances reveals yet another bird of the same feathers. Racist, lying, thieving, arrogant and condescending criminals!

    No wonder this crook disguised as a professor went into hyper drive when the cops showed up!

    Teachable moments, my a_s!!! Chargeable moments, more accurately!

    Ummm….this gives me an great idea!….I could use a few extra hundred thousand.

    So all I have to do is to organize a 501 c3? I love dogs that need help. I used to volunteer with a wonderful recue org…but if I file for one….maybe I could, oh…say..I could help my OWN dogs out…Why they need only the best of food and doggy coats…and maybe even a new airconditioned house….one that perhaps I could live in as well…….wow! great idea!
    I could hit up all my friends…expecially the ones that I have something on! Great…!

    Back to the reality and honesty of my real world. Wonder just how long it would be before someone would be outside my door waiting to arrest ME? Skin color can be a fun thing can’t it? Let’s you get by with anything!

    Gates is a Racist and a thief, working to fight stereotypes? How come this guy doesn’t have a cabinet post?

    Wait a minute – hold it – if they are scamming all this money from people – isn’t that reparations and doesn’t that mean I don’t have to pay – because they’ve been scamming money all along.

    And if you lie, cheat and scam to get money from people – why should anyone have to pay reparations – since you’ve been deceitfully scamming hard earned money from people for years and lying about where it’s going and what it’s been used for – which is basically what you claim all us ‘white folks’ need to be paying reparations for any way – taking money your ancestors earned from the sweat of their brows for our own private use. . .

    Thank you Mr. Riehl for exposing the con that America was about to completely fall for (I also think that ACORN, Project Vote, AmeriCorp, et al) – are also scams to launder money into private citizens con men’s pockets in a back door scheme to get ‘what’s owed them’.

    Thug Administration & Friends & Associates – destroying America one scam at a time.

    This violated so many basic principles of academic ethics, I’m speechless. Speechless!

    Nixon once said, “If they knew what Democrats really believed, they would boil them in oil.” Paraphrase: “If they knew what academics really did with all that grant funding, they would boil them in kerosene.”

  10. canary says:

    money may be going to Gate’s own secret “watermelon gang of thugs” he threatened the police with.

    Who is the insensitive race bigot?

    A picture is worth a thousand words.
