Julia Jenkins Fancelli, daughter of Publix founder George W. Jenkins, contributed $300,000 to the Jan. 6 rally, just the latest conservative cause financed by Publix heirs or the chain itself.
Publix heiress Julia Jenkins Fancelli provided the “lion’s share” of funding for the Washington Ellipse rally preceding the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

Mr. Jones also helped arrange for Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a prominent donor to the Trump campaign and heiress to the Publix Super Markets Inc. chain, to commit about $300,000 through a top fundraising official for former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign, according to organizers. Her money paid for the lion’s share of the roughly $500,000 rally at the Ellipse where Mr. Trump spoke.

That group included a top Trump campaign fundraiser who has family ties to the state’s most popular supermarket chain, according to a Wall Street Journal report released Saturday, which said Julie Jenkins Fancelli, an heiress to the Publix supermarket chain, committed about $300,000 through a top fundraising official for Trump’s 2020 campaign. And that sum reportedly paid the bulk of the $500,000 rally at the Ellipse in Washington where Trump spoke.
