Raj Fernando was born on July 8, 1971, in Denmark. As a philanthropist, he generously supports many organizations in the United States, such as Wounded Warriors and Big Brothers, Big Sisters. His contributions touch hundreds of lives through several channels in various states, the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and Illinois Holocaust Museum just to name a few. As a democrat supporter, he has donated a substantial amount of money to the Clinton Foundation.
Fernando has been a creative and productive fundraiser for Democratic candidates and their causes since 2003.
In 2011, his company Chopper Trading was the third largest fundraiser source for the Obama presidential campaign.
Mr. Fernando attended Beloit College in Wisconsin where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and history. He currently resides in Chicago, IL.
As Chairman and CEO of Scoutahead.com and former CEO of Chopper Trading, Fernando has made significant contributions to the economy of the United States.
His company, Scoutahead.com serves as a platform for surveys which aid institutions and individuals in their research and data collection of strategic information important to various aspects of life. Interesting, because as a generous donor in the world of philanthropy there is no possible way to record or keep track of how many lives his contributions improve or have a profound positive effect upon.
The Jewish saying derived from the Mishna Pirkei Avot 1:2, “Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world” perfectly describes the role of a philanthropist such as Raj Fernando. Hopefully, he will continue his hard work in technology and generous support of the democratic candidates for many years to come.
