Former President Jimmy Carter doesn’t want your money.

The Hill.com reports Carter is urging donors to the Carter Center to redirect their donations to organizations who are on the front lines of fighting the coronavirus crisis.

 “Forgo your next gift for the work of The Carter Center and direct it to a local group that is reducing the suffering caused by this pandemic.”

The former president, his wife, Rosalynn, and their grandson, Jason, who serves as chairman of The Carter Center’s board of trustees expressed their wishes in a letter to donors.

The request would seem right in line with the center’s core values. The center’s About page states the Carter Center is committed to “human rights and the alleviation of human suffering. The Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.”

The Carter Center says former president Jimmy Carter and the Center staff have worked for fair elections and fighting diseases in over 80 countries around the world.

The AJC adds that this is just about when the Carter Center would be gearing up for its annual summer retreat which happens to be a huge fundraiser for the organization.

The letter asks donors to start closest to home. “Each of us asks you to concentrate on the needs of your family, friends, neighbors, and all in your community,” Carter said. “Your commitment will help stop this threat.”
