More donations made to pro-charter-school camp

 

The money keeps rolling in for the pro-charter-school initiative, with another $700,000 in donations reported  last week, following  $3 million the week before.

The latest donations include $400,000 from Connie Ballmer, wife of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, $200,000 from billionaire businessman and philanthropist Eli Broad, and  $100,000 from Doris Fisher of San Francisco, who co-founded the Gap clothing chain with her late husband.

The two groups campaigning against Initiative 1240 haven’t even raised $700,000 total.   People for Our Public Schools posted a couple of $10,000 contributions last week, bringing  its total to $320,000. Those $10,000 contributions came from labor groups – the International Union of Operating Engineers out of Washington, D.C., and the Washington State Labor Council.  No on 1240 has raised about $16,400.

The total donations for the Yes on 1240 committee are now about $9 million.
