The Vanguard funds own at least 14.2%.
PNC Financial Services Group Inc. owns a whopping 21.47% in BlackRock:

PNC Financial Services evolved from the Pittsburgh Trust and Savings Company that was founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1845.
PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. is a Pittsburgh-based financial services corporation, with assets, at the end of 2016, of approximately $366 billion:

When BlackRock went public in 1999 it was owned by PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (since 1995).

In the second week of May 2020, PNC sold most of its stake in BlackRock for some $14.4 billion.
Reportedly keeping 500,000 shares in BlackRock: ... krock.aspx

In this deal the BlackRock shares were sold at a discount of almost 15% for $420 apiece.

Capital Group Cos., Fidelity Investments and Wellington Management increased their stake by buying shares from PNC Financial Services Group.

Norway’s $1 trillion wealth fund and Singapore state investment firm Temasek Holdings Pte were also among the buyers.
Maybe most interesting is that the oil rich Middle East countries expanded their stake in BlackRock - Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Investment Co., the Kuwait Investment Authority, Qatar Investment Authority and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund:

I’ve searched in vain for current information on the major shareholders in BlackRock since PNC sold most of its stake.
The following lists Kuwait Investment Authority (for the government of Kuwait) with a 5.2% stake on 8 July:

In 2010, the Tides Foundation donated $2 million and the Hewlett Foundation another $1.3 million to the Wikimedia Foundation for “general operating support”.
Wikimedia Foundation of course collects donations for the heavily censored Wikipedia...

In 2011, the Stanton Foundation made the largest grant in Wikimedia’s history (at the time), donating $3.6 million, to hire a “Wikipedian in Residence” at Harvard to edit Wikipedia articles on “politically-sensitive” points of view. Tim Sandole, who was hired for this “noble cause”, spoke at an event for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, which violates the prohibition on political campaigning by non-profit charities.

Hewlett and Tides have also both funded the New Venture Fund:

Here’s another strange example of Tides donating to another tax-exempt “foundation” – Hewlett – that is also a top donor to the Tides Foundation.

Hewlett received $230,959 from Tides in 2016.

From 2000 to 2015 among the top 6 recipients of the Hewlett Foundation are the Tides Foundation (that received $24,178,370) and the Tides Canada Foundation (that received another $14,054,864):

The Hewlett Foundation, formally the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, was founded in 1966 by Hewlett-Packard cofounder William Redington Hewlett and his wife Flora Lamson Hewlett. With assets of some $10 billion, it is one of the wealthiest grant makers in the USA.

The largest recipients of grants from the Hewlett Foundation are (many working on the “problem” of overpopulation):
National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy – $60.2 million
International Development Research Centre - $57.1 million
Planned Parenthood (Worldwide and America) - $50.2 million

Stichting Hivos (founded and headquartered in the Netherlands) - $28.8 million
Center for Global Development - $26 million

The Tides Center is relatively low on the list with “only” $8.6 million:

I guess that most people don’t even realise what could be so wrong with a tax-exempt foundation that funnels money to “charities” to obscure the origins of the grants.
Here are 2 genuine scandals of a sister organisation of Tides, ACORN, which gives a glimpse on what evil lurks behind “charity”...

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was founded by Wade Rathke. Rathke is also a long-time Board member of the Tides Foundation since 1976 (and other Tides related organisations). Wade Rathke is also the good friend of Tides founder Drummond Pike.
ACORN also received funding from the Tides Foundation.

See ACORN founder Wade Rathke (left) and his buddy, Tides founder Drummond Pike (right) in Peru (standing in front of a poster of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro).

In 2000, ACORN found out that Wade’s brother, Dale Rathke (who died in 2014), had embezzled $948,507.50 from ACORN in 1999 and 2000. Instead of filing charges against the thief they settled the case with the Rathke family to repay the money.

The agreement between ACORN and the Rathkes was registered as a “loan” from Citizens Consulting Inc.
In 2008, Drummond Pike anonymously bought the loan from the affiliate, according to e-mail messages between senior executives at ACORN.

It took until the summer of 2008, that ACORN whistleblowers leaked the story to the press that Dale Rathke had embezzled nearly $1 million from ACORN (Dale Rathke had continued to be an ACORN board member all this time):

In September 2009, another scandal marked the end of ACORN.
Independent filmmaker James O'Keefe and activist Hannah Giles pose as a pimp and a prostitute and secretly videotape ACORN employees giving them advice on evading taxes and establishing a brothel with underage girls.

After this Congress stops millions in government funding.
ACORN shut down on 1 April 2010.

In 1992, none other than later US president Barack Obama headed the Project Vote campaign in Chicago, affiliated with ACORN, which helped get Carol Moseley Braun elected to the US Senate.
Obama later represented ACORN when it sued Illinois for violating federal polling laws:

In 2008, Barack Obama paid $832,598 to the ACORN-affiliated Citizens Services Inc. for “sound & lighting equipment” (for his campaign?!). According to ACORN, they only received $30,000 of this money (still a lot of cash for some “equipment”).

In 1999-2000, at the same time that Wade’s brother Dale Rathke embezzled almost $950,000 from ACORN, Obama was running for president, backed by SEIU Local 880 and ACORN.

SEIU Local 880 is basically ACORN controlled. ACORN founder Wade Rathke even signed as SEIU Local 880 "Treasurer" in 2000: ... t-scandal/

Citizens Services Inc. is registered at the same address as ACORN (just like a bunch of other shell companies)...

See some of the links from ACORN to Obama’s inner circle, including Citizens Services Inc., Tides and Anna Burger.

Even though the Tides Foundation heavily funded ACORN; they claimed that “none of their money ever went to ACORN”: ... -up-again/

In February 2009, Anna Burger was appointed as a member to President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board to provide advice and counsel in the economic crash.

In 1972, Burger started her career as a union activist in the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 668. Burger later was elected as Local 668's first female president.
the SEIU and ACORN have long worked closely together, with the union paying the association more than $3.6 million in the past three years and sharing some office locations and leaders with the group” with the SEIU D.C. headquarters paying ACORN for training, voter registration and other organizing work.

On 27 September 2007, Anna Burger, John Podesta, and Andrew Stern emailed an interesting memo on the strategy in the coming Obama campaign to several controversial billionaires - George Soros, Peter Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steve Bing, John Sperling, and Michael Vachon: ... indid=2445

Anna Burger was also Vice Chair of the Obama-affiliated Democracy Alliance.
See (part of) the network of the George Soros controlled Democracy Alliance.

Tides Foundation founder Drummond Pike is part of the Democracy Alliance.

Tides Foundation directors Joanie Bronfman (of the infamous Bronfman family) and Quinn Delaney were on Barack Obama’s Inaugural Committee: ... onnection/
