Bloomberg gives away $60 million through the Carnegie Corporation


New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is anonymously giving $60 million in grants to 542 organizations through the Carnegie Corporation, according to a New York Times report.

Though the gifts, which range from $10,000 to $150,000, are technically anonymous, it is an open secret that they are coming from Bloomberg.

Hizzoner, who is in the process of starting a personal foundation, has given some $175 million away through Carnegie since 2002, the Times says, including $30 million last year.
