A "nonprofit" organization set up by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been caught hiding hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations from the IRS, according to a bombshell new report.

Cullors founded Dignity and Power Now in 2013, a group that claims to help black and minority prisoners.

However, a paper trail unearthed by the New York Post has revealed the group raked in at least $225,000 in 2016 but claimed not to have made more than $50,000 in donations that year.

Since the group only reported $50k, it avoided having to file a complete return or outline all of its spending and donations.

On Dignity and Power Now’s website, Cullors is listed as a board member and the founder.

According to the Post, Los Angeles-based Resnick Foundation gave the organization $100,000 and California Initiative gave the group $125,000 but these payments were hidden from the IRS.

Dignity and Power Now also reportedly did not disclose its donations to the California attorney general, which regulates charities in the state. 

On Friday, the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative watchdog group, filed complaints calling on the IRS and the California AG to audit Dignity and Power Now’s finances. 

Cullors stepped down from the Black Lives Matter organization in May amid questions about that organization’s finances. 

Cullors' finances drew attention in April after the New York Post reported she had purchased four homes for $3.2 million.

The report prompted Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, to call for an "independent investigation" into the foundation’s finances.

The two organizations are not affiliated. 

Critics have pointed out that Cullors bought the high-end homes despite referring to herself as a "trained Marxist" in the past.

In April, the foundation disclosed that Cullors had received a total of $120,000 in compensation from 2013 to 2019, according to Fox News.

At the time, Cullors said allegations that she enriched herself through donations meant for Black Lives Matter were "categorically untrue."

She denied that she received a salary from the foundation, asserting that her income came from other sources, such as proceeds from book sales and a YouTube deal.

BLM and Cullors alleged that questioning her lavish lifestyle was a form of "racism."

Cullors could not immediately be reached for comment.
