A non-profit group that has allegedly regularly taken part in pro-Hamas protests and encouraged its members to “support our students so that the encampments can go for as long as they can” has received more than $12 million from the investment firm Goldman Sachs’ charitable arm.

The People’s Forum, which calls itself “a movement incubator for working class and marginalized communities,” has “been a mainstay at anti-Israel protests since Hamas’s Oct. 7, 2023, attack on the Jewish state,” The Washington Free Beacon reported, noting that the group “organized a Times Square protest where attendees celebrated Hamas and waved posters with anti-Semitic slogans and imagery” the day after the horrific Hamas massacre of more than 1200 people in Israel on October 7.

On Monday, the group, which included more than 100 “masked and keffiyeh-clad activists,” according to the Beacon, waited until demonstrators at Columbia University could arrive. Once they arrived, People’s Forum executive director Manolo De Los Santos lauded them for “decid[ing] that resistance is more important than negotiations” and lashed out at “Zionist” Columbia administrators who “want to be more like their masters in Israel,” the Free Beacon, which viewed the meeting on Zoom, reported.

The Free Beacon surmised that the source of the funding from Goldman Sachs “is likely Neville Roy Singham, a communist who has ‘long admired Maoism,’ lives in China, and is married to Jodie Evans, the leader of the hard-left group Code Pink. Singham “reportedly helps finance the Chinese Communist Party’s ‘propaganda worldwide,’ according to the New York Times,” the Free Beacon added.


The New York Times reported in August 2023 that a group called No Cold War is “part of a lavishly funded influence campaign that defends China and pushes its propaganda. At the center is a charismatic American millionaire, Neville Roy Singham, who is known as a socialist benefactor of far-left causes. What is less known, and is hidden amid a tangle of nonprofit groups and shell companies, is that Mr. Singham works closely with the Chinese government media machine and is financing its propaganda worldwide.”

“As with any donor advised fund, the prior donation was made with the client’s money, at the client’s direction,” a Goldman Sachs spokesman advised the Free Beacon, adding, “This was not firm money.”

“The IRS’s charity guidelines state that groups may lose their charity status if they engage in ‘planned activities that violate laws’ or ‘induce the commission of crime,’” the Free Beacon pointed out.
