Tax filings reveal Biden cancer charity spent millions on salaries, zero on research

A can­cer char­i­ty start­ed by Joe Biden gave out no mon­ey to research, and spent most of its con­tri­bu­tions on staff salaries, fed­er­al fil­ings show.

The Biden Can­cer Ini­tia­tive was found­ed in 2017 by the for­mer vice pres­i­dent and his wife Jill Biden to “devel­op and dri­ve imple­men­ta­tion of solu­tions to accel­er­ate progress in can­cer pre­ven­tion, detec­tion, diag­no­sis, research and care and to reduce dis­par­i­ties in can­cer out­comes,” accord­ing to its IRS mis­sion state­ment. But it gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent mil­lions on the salaries of for­mer Wash­ing­ton DC aides it hired.

The char­i­ty took in $4,809,619 in con­tri­bu­tions in fis­cal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on pay­roll in those two years. The group’s pres­i­dent, Gre­go­ry Simon, raked in $429,850 in fis­cal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), accord­ing to the charity’s most recent fed­er­al tax filings.

Simon, a for­mer Pfiz­er exec­u­tive and long­time health care lob­by­ist who head­ed up the White House’s can­cer task force in the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion, saw his salary near­ly dou­ble from the $224,539 he made in fis­cal 2017, tax fil­ings show.

Danielle Car­ni­val, for­mer chief of staff for Obama’s can­cer ini­tia­tive, the Can­cer Moon­shot Task Force, who took home $258,207 in 2018.
