‘Unbound Philanthropy’ exposed as big donor behind open borders movement/refugee resettlement/Trump protests

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 10, 2015

Thanks to Ed for sending this great investigative piece by Lee Stranahan at Breitbart on Unbound Philanthropy and its big kahuna William Reeves (and wifey Debbie Berger).  What a coincidence too, the pair is from Hawaii (bff Obama?).

Update: Reeves and Bergers ‘house’ in Hawaii, thanks to Ed!   How many refugees could be housed here? 

Stranahan tells us that when Trump was protested in Arizona and California a few months ago, the groups protesting were recipients of Reeves’ largess.

Know the enemy!  Read Stranahan’s article by clicking here.

We wrote about Reeves in 2011


Know the enemy! Bill Reeves is bringing in the third world to colonize your towns, change our culture and make sure fewer low-skilled American citizens have jobs.

I’m posting in full my post from February 2011.  I was most interested in the connection between Unbound Philanthropy’s role in helping create that damn Shelbyville, TN propaganda film that was used by the US State Department and others to promote more Somali migration to America.

We have come a long way in the last four years in understanding the massive money machine we are up against.

You will recognize the Migration Policy Institute (in Stranahan’s piece and mine) as one of the groups putting on that Georgetown gig, Jim Simpson and I attended here in October.

Unbound Philanthropy is also one of the organizers and funders of that big Open Borders pow-wow starting Sunday in New York, here.  They will have a whole session on exposing the likes of us!

Here is what I said in 2011 in a post entitled:

Unbound Philanthropy: an example of what we are up against…

…..and why the average American trying to maintain our culture and country through immigration control has a hard time fighting the battle.  The other side is rich and connected to big business (offshore money too!).

Yesterday as I searched for more information on the Migration Policy Institute, an organization that pretends to be a balanced nonpartisan think tank which just this week put out a report that goes after Sheriff’s in some counties overseeing the 287g program,  I came upon Unbound Philanthropy.  It is one of those private foundations used by the super wealthy to channel their excess funds (avoiding taxes by so doing) to pet charities and political projects.

In this case the rich guy is William Reeves of Hawaii:

William Reeves is a director and co-founder of BlueCrest Capital Management Ltd. Based in London, BlueCrest manages investments for a predominantly institutional investor base across 15 diverse funds. Until April 2000, when he left to establish BlueCrest, Mr. Reeves was a Managing Director at J.P. Morgan in London and head of macro strategy and trading within the proprietary trading group. Prior to that, Mr. Reeves was a fund manager at Salomon Brothers Asset Management Limited and at Fisher Francis Trees and Watts, with responsibility for managing leveraged capital. He has also worked for JP Morgan New York where, from 1991 to 1993, he was a Vice President in charge of a team managing the company’s leveraged multi-currency proprietary investment portfolio. Mr. Reeves is a US Trustee of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. He holds an MA in Philosophy from New York University and a BA in English from Yale University. Mr. Reeves was born in Honolulu and raised in Richmond, Virginia where his parents were both educators.

Check out Unbound Philanthropy’s most recent Form 990.  This is a private foundation with a net worth approaching $100 million (note offshore accounts).  In 2008 Mr. Reeves donated $2,619,583 to the foundation (probably reducing his tax liability) to his mostly political projects.  He passed most of that  money through this foundation to a list of projects that include (among others):

The Tides Center (money scrubber supreme):  $250,000

Southern Poverty Law Center:  $150,000

American Immigration Law Foundation: $150,000

Center for American Progress (LOL! Pushing back against Hate Project):  $46,000

And, it looks like the big winner is the International Rescue Committee*** with three grants:  $150,000, $200,000, and $212,000

On their website they brag about many more recent grants, including my favorite:

Mr. Reeves gave $85,000 in 2010 to Active Voice a San Francisco social change advocacy group to promote that damn propaganda film on Shelbyville, TN.

Also in 2010 he passed $500,000 through the Tides Foundation.  In 2009 he gave $150,000 to Media Matters (George Soros) and $240,000 to the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (ahhhhh!).   And, this is how I found Unbound Philanthropy in the first place, they (rich Mr. Reeves) gave the Migration Policy Institute $95,000 to study amnesty for “undocumented youth and women.”

It’s all legal of course, but the next time you hear whining from the pro-migration forces that this is all about the poor and the downtrodden, remember it isn’t.  It is about politics, about new immigrants as Democratic voters, and it’s about cheap labor for big business (like the meatpackers) and nannies and gardeners for rich people.

Just a reminder that David North of the Center for Immigration Studies summed it up well when he attended a recent meeting of the Migration Policy Institute:

It is useful to note that the pro-migration advocates, though allied with each other, come in three different groupings. There are the employers, who want lower wages; there are the ethnic organizations who say, in effect, “Let My People In”; and then there are the intellectuals [ed: read Leftists!], represented Thursday at a session of the foundation-supported Migration Policy Institute.

So our side (the immigration control side) is up against the big money and the hard left political machine using the average do-gooders and  immigrants as their foils.

A final question for Mr. Reeves:  If you are so interested in promoting social change (aka the redistribution of wealth), why not redistribute all your holdings now directly to the refugees and other poor immigrants being dropped off in our cities and towns by the US State Department and their federal contractors.   If the social justice Marxist one-worlders you are supporting win the political war in the US, they will be taking it from you or your heirs anyway.

Go here to the link for the Reeves’ Hawaiian home.  (LOL!  we assume it is in Hawaii but note that for “privacy concerns” its location is not given.

***International Rescue Committee is of course now headed by British former Foreign Secretary David Miliband and is one of nine major federal contractors raking in big bucks from your wallets (and rich elitists like Reeves!) and pushing Obama to admit 100,000 Syrian Muslims to be distributed to your towns!

I wonder that since Unbound Philanthropy works in the UK as well to agitate and organize against the ‘right wing,’ did they have any role in getting Miliband planted in NYC? Hmmmm!

Nine contractors (for new readers):

    Regarding the ”nation of immigrants” trope — that phrase was popularized by John F. Kennedy , and it is used a lot to justify open borders today — but we should be reminded that not everyone in America is ”descended from immigrants.” Some of us, if not many, are descendants of colonists. There is a big, big difference between the colonists who came to a wilderness with no official governments or authorities, and who then built a civilization from that wilderness, and the immigrants who arrived in an established, thriving country.
    There’s little comparison though some try to reduce the colonist-pioneers to being immigrants to an established nation. Just something to remember.

    Funny, I made two posts at The Hill saying that the head of the UNHCR said that Christians couldn’t be refugees, and they both got deleted.
    I’m sure you need the rest Ann, I’ll be retiring in February and don’t know where you get the energy, my get up and go seems to have gotten up and gone.
    I still believe you should set up a PayPal account so we can contribute for your efforts. I’ve always posted links to your site and I believe you’ve done this country a world of good.
    Does anyone out there agree with me?

    we as a great nation in its original form is the largest country of immigrants on earth-all of us plus our great great grand parent came here to make a new life and to better themselves-they came and adapted to the new ways of a better life here in the usa-they were productive and some were even very prosperous -all however pulled their own weight-none of them arrived here on these shore EXPECTING to be taken care of (aka communism ) so how is it that that this liberally blind nation now has expectations of just bringing in NON productive NON contributing people from ALL over the world and EXPECTS them to be taken care of—-truth being THEY ALL would much rather be in their home country with THEIR way of life-they’ve got no interest in what we do here in the usa this is just a sanctuary.
    furthermore if your non productive here there isnt any reason to be here-there are vast UNPOPULATED cities in CHINA that have NOBODY LIVING IN THEM-(LOOK THIS ‘FACT’ UP) THIS is where these alleged unfortunates should be going to-THERE !….NOT HERE-

    Thanks again Ann. Where do you get the energy. Think of where this conversation is now compared to where it was a month ago. No longer baby steps. When I see the Southern Poverty Law Center I look no further. No need.

      Thanks but funny thing is that my energy ran out today, and I’m announcing I’m taking a break starting tomorrow. I figure 8 years at this and I deserve a vacation. I’ll answer e-mails (I really need to get that under control) and post comments, but it’s time to rethink what I’m going to be doing in the future…. But, heck, the whole world is writing on the subject now, right!

            Glad to hear that you are taking a break, partly for selfish reasons. There is no way that I could match your energy and, being petty by nature, I’m jealous. Get some rest and I’m sure that you’ll come back out swinging. If you are not back by then, have a Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years.

    Migration Policy Institute also gets funding for its research from the EU. The massive funding of the left from government sources, including international government entities, is striking. Of course, they are using refugees as the ultimate cudgel for breaking down borders and establishing a global powere elite.

    Excellent work! You forgot to mention Miliband was a bff of Shrillary.

    Did you see the recent PBS special on immigration/amnesty?

    Congress to Consider Easing Passage into U.S. for Immigrants
    Congressional source: ‘The amendment is intended to be a response to Trump’s statement’ about Muslims’

    Congress is set to vote on Thursday on what some have called an “unprecedented” right that would allow immigrants easier access to relocate to the United States, according to new legislation offered by a Democratic senator.

    The legislation, which is being offered by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) as an amendment to a larger bill governing nuclear safety, would prohibit the U.S. government from barring any individual from entering the country based on their religion.
    (Unless of course they are Christians or Jews who are obviously exempt from having “Rights”)
