Our researchers recently completed a months-long update to Verizon Communications, Inc. (1.21). As a result of such an arduous effort, here are some of the key findings:
- Verizon had a total of 2,020 donations related to the issue of Basic Freedoms. The vast majority (1,967) of those individual donations were disbursed to organizations considered “conservative” for various reasons like being a Christian organization or supporting religious liberty. However, the 53 donations that went to “liberal” organizations accounted for more total dollars donated than the amount that went to “conservative” organizations.
- Verizon donated approximately 10x the total number of dollars ($286,798.52) to organizations that were rated as being pro-abortion, then to organizations that were rated as being pro-life ($28,068.90)
- Overall, Verizon follows a trend where they tend to donate to a greater number of organizations rated as “conservative” for one reason or another, but then donate a greater total number of dollars to organizations rated as “liberal”.
