Jennifer Ann Allan Soros is the wife of Jonathan Soros, the third child of liberal finance billionaire George Soros and his first wife, Annaliese Witschak. Jennifer and her husband have given millions of dollars to left-of-center causes, Democratic Party candidates, and the abortion provider Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).  Jennifer’s mother was a former director for Planned Parenthood of Medina-Summit-Portage Counties in Akron, Ohio from 1988-1990; since 2008, Allan-Soros has personally given $1,455,000 to PPFA and its affiliated organizations while also serving as a director of the PPFA in 2012 and board of director member in 2013-14. [1] [2]

Jennifer has been an active member of the Soros family’s multiple organizations and is the president of the Jennifer and Jonathan Allan Soros Foundation (JJASF). From 2010 to 2015 the JJSAF has dispersed $22,090,788 to 40 left-liberal groups such as the Open Society Institute, left-of-center funding vehicles, liberal think tanks, groups involved in left-progressive judicial policy, liberal-leaning “transparency” groups, labor union-aligned activist groups, and pro-abortion advocates. In 2016 Jennifer helped found Give Lively Foundation Inc, a private professional fundraiser destination that provides non-profits with a free application to accept donations and make grants. [3]

Early Life

Jennifer Ann Allan was born in 1970 to Ann Howard and Ronald Allan of Akron, Ohio. Her father Ronald Allan was a U.S. Navy officer and lawyer at Buckingham, Doolittle, and Burroughs in Akron, Ohio, where he spent most of his life. [4] Jennifer’s mother, Ann G. Allan, is an associate professor emeritus of library science at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. [5] She is also a former board director Planned Parenthood of Medina-Summit-Portage Counties, Akron from 1988-1990. [6]

Jennifer graduated from the all-women’s Mount Holyoke College in 1992 with a B.A. in political science and government and completed a master’s degree in social work from Boston University in 1997. [7]

Marriage

Jennifer Ann Allan met Jonathan Soros while they both worked on Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and married in 1997 while both were in graduate school in the Boston area. [8] After their marriage, she started taking part in the Soros family’s left-of-center advocacy organizations; in 2009, she and Jonathan founded their own private foundation, the Jennifer and Jonathan Allan Soros Foundation.

Jennifer Ann Allan Soros is the president of the JJSAF and has been since the organization’s founding in 2009. The foundation has dispersed $22,090,788 to 40 left-liberal groups from 2010 to 2015. [9] The JJSAF received a personal loan from Jennifer, her husband Jonathan, and several private firms linked to the Soros family. The funding priorities of the JJSAF reflect the policy preferences of the couple, including support for pro-abortion advocates, the Open Society Institute of Jonathan’s father George Soros, other left-of-center funding vehicles, liberal think tanks, groups involved in left-progressive judicial policy, liberal-leaning “transparency” groups, and labor union-aligned activist groups. [10]

Give Lively LLC

Give Lively Foundation is a private professional fundraiser founded by Jonathan Soros and Jennifer Ann Allan Soros in 2016 to provide non-profits with a free application to accept donations and make grants. [11] The company offers a free platform to allow small donors to give to multiple organizations, groups, and campaigns. [12]

Personal Political Contributions

Jennifer Ann Allan Soros has personally given over $2,418,840.64 to left-of-center groups, abortion advocacy groups, and Democratic candidates according to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) website since 1990.  Since attending a Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. (PPFA) summer internship in the early 1990s, when her mother was a board member of an Akron, Ohio PPFA branch, she has been a significant donor and supporter of the abortion provider. [13] From 2013-2014 she served as a director for PPFA and PPFA’s Action Fund as a member of the board of directors. [14] Beginning in 2008 Jennifer contributed at least $1,455,000 of her own money to PPFA and its affiliated organizations. [15] The JJSAF, under Jennifer’s direction as president, also granted PPFA $788,000 from 2012-2015. [16]

Jennifer and Jonathan as a couple gave significant funds to left-of-center and Democratic candidates with $1,192,467 in 2012 and $1,737,760 in 2016. [17] [18] Jennifer has contributed $964,840.64 of her wealth to Democratic candidates and groups since 1998, according to the FEC. [19]
