The philanthropic activities of George Soros have played a key role in the life of the hedge fund manager since 1979 when he made his first steps into helping the people of the world live better and more constructive lives. In many ways the philanthropic work of George Soros has overtaken the important financial work he completes alongside the newly appointed Chief Investment Officer of Soros Fund Management, Dawn FitzPatrick; the decision to appoint a female investment specialist to one of the most important positions in the financial industry shows just how important it is for George Soros to promote diversity and the rights of female workers to reach the highest positions available in many different industries. Politico reports the chance to assist the rights of women have gone so far in the life of George Soros that he has been a major supporter of the campaign of former First lady Hillary Clinton to become the first female U.S. President.

George Soros has become a major supporter of the basic human rights of people across the world as the founder of the Open Society Foundations organization that is leading the fight to make sure each and every person achieves as much as possible within a global community that reflects the right to democracy and free speech. Forbes reports George Soros has built a personal fortune of more than $25 billion as one of the most successful hedge fund managers in the world, a level of success Soros himself has described in his many books as giving him the chance to help the people of the world who are stranded in closed societies. The establishment of the Open Society Foundations network of charitable groups was completed in 1984, a full five years after George Soros made his first charitable impact providing support and equipment for eastern European groups looking to provide information on living a democratic life for those trapped behind the “Iron Curtain” of Soviet rule.
In 2008, George Soros made the decision to back the Presidential election campaign of Barrack Obama instead of continuing a political relationship with Hillary Clinton that began over 25 years earlier. Despite the success of winning the 2008 and 2012 elections with President Obama and the democratic Party, George Soros took a step back from politics after beginning to feel the Obama Administration had not sought as radical a left leaning agenda as had been promised; in 2016, the rising level of right wing rhetoric and issues being raised in the U.S. election cycle prompted the Open Society Foundations founder to provide around $25 million in funding for the campaign of Hillary Clinton for the Presidency. Since the election victory of President Donald Trump, George Soros has remained a vocal critic of the policies coming out of The White House and pledged to continue to support the Democrat’s in a bid to return them to power in Washington as early as 2018.
