[9] Along with the Rosenthal Family Foundation, other contributors include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and Marilyn and Jim Simons. [10]

[11] According to filings with the Federal Election Commission, Phil Rosenthal has contributed to hundreds of left-leaning Democratic groups and individuals, including Biden for President, Planned Parenthood Votes, Forward Majority Action, Sen.
