George Soros is a very generous man to causes that he believes are right. Most of the money that he gives is provided by his Open Society Foundation that he founded in 1993. This organization gives millions away each year with a majority of it going to causes backed by the Democrats.
The first value of the Open Society Foundation is the right of all humans to live with dignity under the rule of law on Investopedia. The foundation actively supports think tanks that would see fewer people incarcerated like the Sentencing Project, All of Us or None and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Fully Participate in Life
The second value stated on their website is the right for everyone to fully participate in civic, economic and cultural life. According to Discover the Networks, he actively supports the American Federation of Teachers that has voiced a very left-wing agenda since 1997. George Soros is also a supporter of American Friends Service Committee who believes that American policy is responsible for most of the suffering around the world. George is also a funder for the American Institute for Social Justice who works to support minimum-wage bills in many states.
A third goal is the stopping of discrimination including race, class, gender, sexual orientation and citizenship. He is a supporter of the American Immigration Law Foundation working to make sure that illegal aliens can stay in America. He is also a major funder of the American Library Association who supports the rights of all Americans to use libraries without having their information shared with law enforcement agents on Forbes.

George Soros came to London as a young man from Hungary where he studied at the London School of Economics, and he worked two jobs. After graduation, he moved to the United States. George Soros has a brilliant business mind that has allowed him to make billions in the stock market where others have failed. He has the right to spend his money as he desires. The public has the right, however, to understand when his voice is influencing a topic that interests them.
