The Open Society Foundations’ plans to commit $50 million to increase civic engagement among women and young people, emphasizing “nonpartisanship.”

However, many are questioning the “nonpartisan” nature of the funding, particularly in light of the organizations receiving the support and the history of Soros’ partisan involvement. One of the groups receiving the “nonpartisan” funding will be Planned Parenthood, as noted by critics.

Most Republicans see the portrayal of the funding as nonpartisan as nothing more than a joke. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“In the early stages of the Trump administration, philanthropic support for organizations seeking to protect and defend progressive policy wins and to counter democratic suppression efforts surged,” Alex Soros stated.

“But groups dedicated to the civic engagement of women and young people did not see similar increases in levels of support.”

AP’s Thalia Beaty said, “The new funding is explicitly not timed to influence the 2024 presidential election, said Laleh Ispahani, the executive director of Open Society-U.S., emphasizing that the funding is nonpartisan.”

“We want them at the forefront of informing a new agenda for any administration,” Ispahani stated.

“We want them to be there if there is a resistance again. They are important no matter what.”

“Grantees include Planned Parenthood, the National Women’s Law Center, the Alliance for Youth Action, Run for Something, and Power Rising, a member of the Black Women’s Leadership Collective, which led a campaign to support the nomination of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court last year,” the piece noted.

“At this moment, when women and women’s bodies and gender nonconforming folks are being attacked on a daily basis, are they willing to move 10 percent to us?” said Teresa Younger, president and CEO of the Ms. Foundation.

“Are the bodies of black and brown women and gender nonconforming folks valuable enough for them to continue to feel uncomfortable about the dollars that are sitting in their endowments and move those dollars to the field?”
