UCLA Rejects Donald Sterling's $3 Million Donation! Will Others Do The Same With His Dirty Money??

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzBasketballCharitySchool

A handful of charity organizations had to decide what to do with Donald Sterling's donations!

Ever since audio recordings of Donald Sterling going on a racist rant were leaked this weekend, plenty of companies have been distancing themselves from the Los Angeles Clippers owner!

But what about the organization that have been receiving HUGE donations from the billionaire and putting the money to good use?

Well UCLA found themselves in this moral dilemma after Donald pledged to donate $3 million for kidney research! Although the money was for a good cause, the University has decided to return the initial check they received for $425,000 and says they wont be accepting any more of his cash!

The move comes after an ad was placed in Sunday's edition of the LA Times in which the University thanks Donald and his wife Shelly Sterling and says they would name a research lab in their honor! UCLA claims they had NOTHING to do with the ad and that it was actually placed by Donald himself!

Tons of other organizations have found themselves in similar situations, such as Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance which has received $30,000 from Donald over the last three years! The museum says they will keep the money since it's already been spent, however, they will NOT be accepting any more donations on his behalf!

A Place Called Home, which is a shelter for at-risk teens, has received a $100,000 pledge which has been paid in yearly installments. The organization says they will keep the $30,000 they have already received but they will be rejecting the rest of the money.

Meanwhile, Temple of the Arts, L.A. Union Rescue Mission, and American Diabetes Association are ALL keeping the donations they've received from Donald, and they shared similar sentiments saying the money is going towards a good cause, regardless of where it came from.

Goodwill of Southern California also received a $100,000 donation from Donald, and they say they will be returning ALL of the money they've received thus far and wont take ANY donations from him in the future!

It's definitely a tough call to make considering some of these organizations rely on donations such as his just to function, and in the end it DOES go towards a great cause. However, it's great to see some of them taking a stand and showing his dirty money is NOT wanted!

    What if you were dying and this guy's money could save you? Would you really throw his money back in his face? Charities should take the money they are offered and be grateful for it. Not too many people can afford to donate anything these days.

    Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn’t. This isn’t fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry -

    Will UCLA also give back all the basketball champ banners largely bought by known mafia guy Sam Gilbert?
    Sam broke rules and Sterling open his dumb mouth, yet Sterling is hated and Gilberts work honored at most corrupt school in the world!
