Donations to Catholic Diocese of Spokane, Salvation Army through group also funding far-right interests draws scrutiny

The donations to the two local charitable organizations make up a small fraction of Donors Trust's $180 million in giving in 2020, according to a tax filing first obtained by CNBC and linked to Spokane by the news outlet the National Catholic Reporter earlier this month. That document also contained evidence of giving, through what are known as "donor-advised funds," to a group called VDARE, whose founder has espoused white nationalist views, and the Tea Party Patriots Foundation, a Georgia-based organization that helped organize the rally featuring President Donald Trump before some attendees violently breached the Capitol Building. Donors Trust paid out $75,000 to the VDARE Foundation in 2020, according to the tax filing, and $250,000 to the tea party group.
