The billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, known best for shepherding big money to conservative causes and candidates, have given a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund, the organization announced Friday.

Let the squirming begin!

Dont forget as I mentioned in the last Koch brothers thread first and foremost:
"Not that I donít mind they fund a lot of PBS's educational programs, but lets be real here."

Most people with lots of income and wealth donate, and for a number of reasons including tax write offs, public relations, true charity, religion, and self immortalizing.

Still does not change or take away their actions to the contrary.

Donald Sterling donated money to the NAACP. I never heard of the Kochs being accused of racism.

The Koch Brothers donate alot of money! There seems to not be much rhyme or reason to it. They regularly donate to Democrats and Republicans that disagree on everything... Also, they donate to just about every charity under the sun regardless of what its for. I guess if you have as much money as they do, you have to donate as much as possible for tax reasons.
