The far-left organization Black Lives Matter (BLM) has been showered with copious amounts of cash by corporations, with nearly $83 billion in donations.
That’s according to a report. The revelation exposes the really warm connection between big business and radical extremist progressives.
Biggest Shakedown of Big Business
The staggering figure that BLM and its related groups managed to “shakedown” from corporate America has been revealed in a report by The American Way of Life Center. This is a body of conservative think-tank The Claremont Institute, as quoted by Newsweek and Breitbart News.
The Claremont Institute’s report is a “funding database” showing a breakdown of the mind-blowing $82.9 billion in corporate funding to BLM. In the Newsweek article, the institute emphasized BLM was about much more than only the “rioting and destruction” the US experienced in 2020.
Thus, the center noted, all the BLM blackmail, harassment, and pressure translated into likely the biggest, “most lucrative shakedown” that corporate America ever experienced.
To underscore all the free money that the Marxist-Communist group managed to snap up with little effort, the report mentions the combined total of the donations is greater than the Gross Domestic Product of a total of 46 African nations.
For comparison, in 2022, the Ford Motor Company registered profits amounting to $23 billion.
The Claremont Institute made it clear that over $123 million from the donations went directly to the BLM parent organizations, while the rest went to groups supporting its far-left communist agenda.
US Tech, Pharma, Oil & Arms corporations gave over $83 Billion to BLM. It is alleged over $500 Billion funding has gone into BLM & related activities.
The BLM riots were fueled with these massive funds in 2020 until Biden was sworn in.

The report exposes the largest donors to the anti-American BLM causes. Thus, Walmart, which is headquartered in Arkansas, showered BLM and “related causes” for “racial equity” with a whopping $100 million.
It was surpassed by Amazon, though, with the latter retail giant bestowing almost $170 million, an astonishing sum, upon pro-BLM groups. Another giant, Apple, also squandered $100 million in favor of BLM’s agenda, while Nike sacrificed $90 million for “equity.”
Abbvie, a pharmaceutical company, pitched in with donations surpassing $62 million to back up BLM causes. Credit card company American Express gifted the Marxist Communist causes about $50 million.
CNN’s parent company, AT&T, joined the list with $21.5 million and Allstate gave $7.7 million to the BLM Commies. Other giant donors to the far left CRT-loving groups are Wells Fargo – with a stunning $210 million, Deloitte – with $85 million, and Bank of America – with $18.25 million.
There are even bigger BLM donors according to the report, though, as asset management corporation BlackRock spent $810 million on BLM and related causes.
US Bank gave BLM $160 million, Morgan Stanley – $30 million, Capital One Financial – $10 million, and Goldman Sachs – $10.1 million. Some of the biggest business donors to BLM groups and causes are Mastercard with $500 million and Prudential Financial with $450 million.
