Supports a majority of conservative candidates.
Money was given to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders but from individuals and not from the Organization.
Koch gave to the 2 “defeated” senators from Georgia, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
Grants have been given to help fund public school robotics and reading programs, college scholarships, job training initiatives, equipment for local fire departments, conversation projects (Wisconsin’s Trees for Tomorrow) and educational programs for young, female and minority entrepreneurs.

My thoughts: I’m looking to buy Made in America products and I’m glad I found Quilted Northern. The TP is soft enough for me. I’m glad to support. As to where they spend their money, it’s mostly conservative candidates and I’m happy with that.
I recommend this product!!
