(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) – Wealthy philanthropist and megadonor Foster Friess died Thursday at 81.
The former asset manager was a large donor to Republican politicians and conservative causes, including Turning Point USA, the Daily Caller, and Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign. In 2013, he received an award for conservative philanthropy at the Conservative Political Action Conference. He donated more than $500 million throughout his life, according to his family.
Friess was also an avowed evangelical Christian. “It’s the Lord’s money. I know that. If it was mine, you wouldn’t be getting one dead red cent,” he joked at CPAC in 2013.
