Charity or Bribery?

The problem I am having is in reading this article about a wealthy individual challenging the general public to donate to a crowdfunding campaign raising funds for veteran’s charities. Now this in and of itself is wonderful, but the problem is the author is only a potential philanthropist because of an added stipulation of giving if Donald Trump releases his tax returns by October 19. This condition would never be used by professional fundraisers.

Our code of ethics don’t allow us to turn philanthropy into a form of bribery.
