Scientology's biggest donors of 2019, so far: The whales giving millions to Miscavige - 2019-09-04
Yesterday, we showed you the lesser whales keeping Scientology afloat with their donations, as revealed in the latest issue of Impact magazine.
Today, we show you the real moneybags, the donors who were recognized earlier this year for donating more than a million dollars each, and to just one Scientology initiative, the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) slush fund.
As we pointed out yesterday, Scientology makes a game out of giving the church huge sums, begging big donors — we call them "whales" — to turn over more and more in the hopes of reaching a new status level, a bigger trophy, and the prospect of being included in Impact magazine. This recent issue included celebrations that took place in Clearwater, Florida and Beverly Hills, California. (And for each photo, we've indicated which event it came from. We've also included the descriptions of the donors from the magazine, with our own comments in brackets.)
