ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, DynCorp, G4S, Walmart and McDonald’s are just a few of the companies that the mega ‘charity’ supports.

With an endowment larger than all but four of the world’s largest hedge funds, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is easily one of the most powerful ‘charities’ in the world. According to its website, the organization “works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives.”

So how do the investments of the foundation’s $36 billion investing arm, the Gates Foundation Trust, match up to its mission? We dug into the group’s recently released 2012 tax returns to find out.

  1. None of the Gates stuff surprises me it really is a tax reduction platform. The amount required to be”invested “to be entitled for the charity titles is minuscule.
    Here is some interesting facts from Wikipedia
    “The Foundation posts its audited financial statements and 990-PF forms on the “Financials” section of its website as they become available. At the end of 2012, the Foundation registered a cash sum of US$4,998,000, down from US$10,810,000 at the end of 2011. Unrestricted net assets at the end of 2012 were worth US$31,950,613,000, while total assets were worth US$37,176,777.[". SO IT IS MAKING A CONSIDERABLE PROFIT!!!

    "The Foundation explains on its website that its trustees divided the organization into two entities: the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (foundation) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust (trust). The foundation section, based in Seattle, US, "focuses on improving health and alleviating extreme poverty," and its trustees are Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett. The trust section manages "the investment assets and transfer proceeds to the foundation as necessary to achieve the foundation’s charitable goals"—it holds the assets of Bill and Melinda Gates, who are the sole trustees, and receives contributions from Buffett"

    "The foundation trust invests undistributed assets, with the exclusive goal of maximizing the return on investment. As a result, its investments include companies that have been criticized for worsening poverty in the same developing countries where the Foundation is attempting to relieve poverty.[79] These include companies that pollute heavily and pharmaceutical companies that do not sell into the developing world.[80] In response to press criticism, the foundation announced in 2007 a review of its investments to assess social responsibility.[81] It subsequently cancelled the review and stood by its policy of investing for maximum return, while using voting rights to influence company practices.[82]”

    Not much surprising in all of this. Seems like legal money laundering to me!!
