Prince Harry’s Foundation Receives $10m Donation from Unidentified Donor
Archewell Foundation, a nonprofit charitable foundation, created by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is said to have received a total of £8,263,300 ($10m) from an unidentified wealthy person alone, investigation revealed.
“A large part of the donations given to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s foundation in 2021 came from a single donor, it has been claimed. Meghan and Prince Harry’s non-profit organisation shared its impact report at the end of January.
“While the report did not include how much the Foundation had raised, royal author and correspondent Omid Scobie claimed the total donations in the organisation’s first year of operation amounted to £10,740,340 ($13million).”
Scobie, co-author of the unauthorised biography of the Sussexes titled Finding Freedom, went on to claim the Foundation distributed £2,478,990 ($3m) in grants across a number of areas Meghan and Harry have been focusing on in recent years – including vaccine equity, refugee resettlement, relief centres and the creation of a better online world.
Also, an investigation by Daily Mail claimed that a donation to Archewell was made through the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF), a non-profit launched in 2007 known to have been used in the past by tech giants to make donations.
On the SVCF website, it stated that it is on a mission to connect people, ideas and resources to transform systems and ensure equity and opportunity for all.
Over the years, tech billionaires such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter creator Jack Dorsey are said to have used the SVCF funds to donate millions to charity. Prince Harry, reports have it, entered the Silicon Valley world just one year after stepping back as a full-time working member of the Firm.
