Update: Data Set for CTCL Grants to Georgia Counties

Another in an occasional series on the Zuckerberg election grants

Jan. 2022 Update: This report was written with the best information available in 2021 but is now out-of-date. For updated analysis using CTCL’s latest disclosures, see Georgia in “Shining a Light on Zuck Bucks

As a part of our occasional series on the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), Capital Research Center (CRC) published an analysis of the $350 million donated by Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan to this allegedly “nonpartisan” nonprofit. CTCL in turn re-granted the funds to thousands of governmental election officials around the country to “help” them conduct the 2020 election.

In the interest of full transparency and to assist others in researching this activity, we are providing a spreadsheet showing CTCL’s known grants to Georgia counties, grant spending per capita, and voting comparisons. The spreadsheet is here.

We will be releasing analyses and providing additional data for other selected states where CTCL provided grant assistance to local governments.

This report was prepared as part of the charitable mission of the Capital Research Center to educate the public. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, CRC does not participate in any political campaign on behalf of, or in opposition to, any candidate for public office. In addition, CRC received no compensation for this analysis, per CRC’s strict policy of performing no contract work and accepting no government funds.
