A nonprofit Catholic organization rejected a $100,000 contribution from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft!
Patrick Moynihan, who heads The Haitian Project, declined the donation.
“The last thing I wanted was a donation from Robert Kraft,” says Patrick Moynihan who heads up The Haitian Project. “I could not be silent. I had to stand up.”
The Rhode Island-based organization educates hundreds of students through its support of a system of Catholic schools in Haiti. Its budget for the year is $1.36 million.
The nonprofit stated that $100,000 could cover a year's worth of education, housing and food, among other expenses, for 50 students.
“$100,000 is hugely significant to us,” Moynihan said. “I represent the needs of people who have a singularly terrible situation — a lack of assets. But we cannot do good by doing bad. The ends cannot justify the means.”
