Donations to the national organization for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement have seen a sharp decline amid several self-enrichment scandals and infighting.
Records viewed by The Epoch Times show that the fundraising arm of the organization, Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, raised just $9.3 million in the fiscal year ended in June 2022 compared to the $80 million or so the group raised in 2020, the year that George Floyd protests and riots rocked cities across America.
The documents were first obtained and reported on by The Washington Free Beacon.
The stunning 88 percent drop in donations comes amid controversy around the group’s financial accounting, allegations that organizers used donations to enrich themselves, and a lawsuit from BLM Grassroots that accused the head of BLM Global Network Foundation of stealing over $10 million.
