The Koch Brothers Take on Poverty and the Quality of Education

Charles Koch’s company is now building a non-profit arm focusing on poverty and educational causes. Aptly called Stand Together, leaders of the billionaire industrialist’s company say that it seeks to address social ills and to revitalize the civil society. Currently in the start-up phase, the organization seeks to raise some $15 million as told in its first interview with USA TODAY.

Group executive director Evan Feinberg said that the sole purpose of Stand Together is to solve societal problems by making a real difference in people’s lives. He said that they plan to partner with private entities to address social problems and will not go into any fights on policy.

Stand Together will be launched publicly this week with its plans and website shown. They have been building the program for about a year internally. One of the first missions it has is to team with the President and CEO of Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, Bob Woodson. Woodson, a black conservative, trains leaders at the grass-roots level, and was the architect of faith-based initiatives for President George W. Bush. He has also traveled to poverty-stricken areas around the country with House Speaker Paul Ryan to seek support for Ryan’s plan on his war against poverty.

The Koch brothers, Charles, and David have constantly donated millions of dollars to poor and free-market causes. In 2014, they donated $25 million mostly for scholarships to the United Negro College Fund. They have a partnership with the current administration to push for an overhaul of the criminal justice system and change laws that unfairly target the poor.

Charles Koch is a businessman and philanthropist, he is the chairman of the board and has been CEO of Koch Industries since 1967. He is also co-owner of the company based in Wichita Kansas. Koch authored a book called “The Science of Success” published in 2007 that describes his approach to management and business philosophy. He is married with two children.

To show how important Stand Together is, Charles Koch’s top advisers are on board to help steer it. Richard Fink, a top political advisor, and Brian Hooks, president of Charles Koch Foundation and Charles Koch Institute are among the board members.

Feinberg said that Stand Together will integrate grants and support for infrastructure. It will probably provide scholarships to private schools for poor kids. IT, human resources, and accounting assistance will also be provided to small non-profit organizations.

US Money Reserve and the CAFB of Texas

 

The widely known precious metal distributor US Money Reserve is known to have given their money to a number of different causes over the years and have most recently given a large donation to the Central Area Food Bank of Texas, which helps feed homeless people and those who are unable to reasonably find or purchase food. The CAFB of Texas operates in Central Texas and helps people in twenty-one counties get the food they need for themselves and their family.

This great cause has helped give out more than thirty million pounds of food a year, which is nothing short of remarkable. The CAFB of Texas was expected to fold until US Money Reserve was able to give them a large enough donation to keep them afloat for a little while longer.

The publication where all of this information was based from was found on the Digital Journal, and can be found here.

The US Money Reserve is by far one of the leaders in the gold and silver distribution markets. Customers who are seeking precious metals will only go to the most trusted sources to get their metals. Those who have used US Money Reserve generally refuse to use any other company to facilitate their precious metal deals. US Money Reserve allows its clients and customers to have the chance at getting a one hundred percent refund in full, because customer service is one of the most important things that US Money Reserve cares about. Anybody who is looking to find more information out about US Money Reserve and see all what kinds of products they have for sale on their website, check out www.USMoneyReserve.com.

The Central Area Food Bank of Texas can benefit by receiving donations from anyone in Texas who can spare money to help feed the hungry.
