When philanthropy is accused of jeopardizing democracy
The influence wielded by large foundations is a controversial topic in the U.S., where a handful donors like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation—a key contributor to Gavi and The Global Fund in Geneva—account for most of the world’s philanthropy.
