One of the five children of George Soros, Alexander Soros has firmly established himself as a major philanthropist. He focuses mainly on progressive causes that might not have garnered widespread support. He is on the board of directors of various organizations including Global Witness and the Open Society Foundations. The younger Soros is also on the board of the Jewish Funds for Justice. This organization was the recipient of his first major philanthropic contribution in the form of $250,000 in August 2010.
