The Trump family doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to charitable donations and Melania is now adding to this. An event run by the former First Lady is now under investigation after it promised to donate money to a charity that apparently doesn’t exist. The gathering, scheduled for April in Naples, Florida, is part of Melania’s “Be Best” initiative and sets out to “grant computer science scholarships to those aging out of the foster care system.” The price of tickets ranged from $3,000 to $50,000 with a portion of the proceeds promised to go to a charity called “Fostering the Future.” However, no such charity with this name or with the “Be Best” name is registered in the Sunshine State, something that is a requirement under Florida law. The Consumer Services Division is now investigating whether this is a violation of the state’s statutes. Melania has denied the allegation that the charity doesn’t exist and we’ll see what ultimately comes of it.
