Jeffrey Epstein Caught Secretly Funneling Cash to Celebrities and Universities
Mysterious charity foundation set up by pedophile billionaire
Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein set up a mysterious charity foundation that he used to funnel money to various celebrities and elite universities, according to reports.
A private foundation called Gratitude America, Ltd was set up by Epstein, according to the Daily Beast.
The foundation was giving out cash to nonprofit groups founded by the likes of Deepak Chopra and Elton John.
According to the review of the foundation’s tax filings, it also funded “an all-girls school in Manhattan, a youth tennis program, cancer charities, Harvard’s famous theater troupe, posh New York arts societies at Lincoln Center and the Met, and a nonprofit linked to the wife of a former Harvard president who flew on Epstein’s private jet.”
But the foundation did nothing to make its existence known; the only evidence of its activity is via its tax filings.
The organization was launched in 2012, three years after Epstein had served an 18-month prison sentence following his guilty plea to soliciting an underage prostitute.
Earlier this week, we reported the Manhattan DA’s office was already in that billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was a dangerous pedophile when the prosecutor fought for leniency during his sex offender registry hearing in 2011.

Before the hearing, the then-deputy chief of Sex Crimes, Jennifer Gaffney was handed a confidential state assessment considered Epstein to be a highly dangerous pedophile that is likely to continue preying on young girls, according to the DA's appellate brief following the hearing.
Since 2011, the brief has been sealed, but the New York Post recently obtained it.
Last year, Epstein settled a lawsuit with a woman he reportedly recruited as his sex slave.
Epstein and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell were sued by Sarah Ransome in Manhattan federal court last year for claims he forced her into sex acts in 2006 and 2007.
