Charles Koch Gives For A Good Cause

George Mason University has built a conservative powerhouse when it comes to economics as well as law. This public school outside the capital has in turn earned tens of millions of dollars from a billionaire Republican donor known as Charles Koch.
Tax records of this school have shown that the Charles Koch Foundation has given up to $48 million to this learning institution. Koch has a tendency of donating up to 20 million of dollars to different schools every year. However, these schools would only get $1 million annually while the George Mason University got up to $48 million. Several billionaires commit some of their money to educational purposes, the large amounts sent to this university has raised eyebrows especially among the faculty and the students of other institutions alike.

The suspicion is based on why the billionaire is determined to put in so much money without a motive. A majority of other donators put in vast sums of money for a particular purpose such as a research program. However, earlier in the year other billionaires have joined in the trend of donating to schools without expecting something in return. For instance, Phil Knight, co-founder of Nike Inc. gave a $400million scholarship to Stanford University.

All the same, there are those who support the deeds and appreciate the thought behind it by commenting that there is no harm in giving and expecting nothing in return. The Koch industry has also been giving a lot of financial aid to the educational institution from a long time back. This giving habit has only strengthened the relationship between the law school and the Koch Foundation. Recently, he gave them a $10 million gift. At the same time, the university received an anonymous reward of $20 million to aid in renaming the school.

These individuals closing the tie include the vice president of Koch Industries, Richard Fink, the CEO of a grant-making foundation with close connections to Koch as well as Jon McCain. Also, Charles Koch is the chairman of the IHS Board and a member of the Mercatus board.

Charles Koch is a businessman in the U.S as well as a philanthropist. He is not only the chief executive officer of Koch Industries but also the co-owner of the company after inheriting it from his father alongside his brother, David Koch. The two brothers expanded the business such that it did not deal with just oil refining and chemicals but also fibers, polymers, fertilizers, and minerals.
