In the event supporters of President Donald Trump are looking for charities to donate to, or not, the Palm Beach Daily News has compiled a convenient list.
Few things excite the left more than boycotting businesses owned by Republicans and other right-of-center entrepreneurs, and in light of the president’s remarks about the violence in Charlottesville, where he stressed that there were two sides involved, a number of charities and organizations are opting not to hold events at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
These are all groups, 20 in all, that held events at the luxury resort last year.

The Achilles Freedom Team and the Palm Beach Police Foundation ball would gladly welcome a generous contribution from Trump supporters.
The Daily News noted that there are a couple of companies they “haven’t heard from yet,” and one that’s still deciding.
That the newspaper is going through the painstaking process of contacting each and every organization that held an event at Mar-a-Lago last year speaks for itself.
Below is a list from the Daily News of groups that have “decided in recent months — or days — to move their event from Mar-a-Lago.”
In stating “recent months,” it’s clear the decision may have come long before events in Charlottesville. Either way, these companies appear to have little interest in financial support from those who back the president. Maybe they had other reasons. If that’s the case, inquiring minds would like to know.
