Flag Land Base funding source

A news article out today reports that in 2016, the Trish Joy Foundation made two donations to the Flag Service Organization (FSO). The FSO runs the Flag Land Base in Clearwater.
According to the data on page 21 of the 22-page tax filing linked below, the donations were for the dissemination and delivery of religious services. They were in the total amount of $2.65 million.
The larger of the two donations was in the form of AbbVie Stock. This is a pharmaceutical company that makes the cancer drug Ibrutinib (Imbruvica, Ibrutix).
In 2016, this drug cost about $150,000 a year per patient. AbbVie estimates global sales of the drug will be $5 billion in 2020.
