Tim Cook, Apple's top executive, is set to host a fundraiser for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Buzzfeed reports.
Also hosted by Lisa Jackson, the vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives at Apple, the event on August 24 will contribute to the Hillary Victory Fund, which supports her campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and 38 state parties.
This is not an official Apple event, as the company does not have a political action committee or officially donate money to candidates from either party. Cook hosted a fundraiser for Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan last month.
The Clinton fundraiser has three donation levels: $50,000, $10,000, and $2,700
Although Cook has helped Paul Ryan, he hasn't made the same overture to GOP nominee Donald Trump, who called for a boycott on Apple products in February, during the company's legal battle with the FBI over unlocking the iPhone of one of the San Bernadino shooters, according to The Verge.
Apple withheld their support from the Republican National Convention, officially because of Trump's rhetoric. Although Apple Insider reports that the company did support the Democratic National Convention, loaning them hardware as it has for previous conventions for the two parties.
In spite of Trump's call for a boycott, he himself still uses Apple products, as seen during his "ask me anything" segment on Reddit.
