Axios reported that Josh Kushner — who founded venture capital firm Thrive Capital and health insurance company Oscar — made the donation to the march, which is scheduled for later this month in Washington, D.C., to rally against gun violence.

In 2016, a spokesman described Josh Kushner as a "lifelong Democrat" and said he wouldn't be voting for Trump in the 2016 election. 

The march was planned last month after a gunman opened fire at a high school in Florida, killing 17 people.

Students at the high school have since become vocal advocates for gun control, rallying lawmakers and demanding action to prevent future school shootings.

A recent report said Trump is planning to unveil a proposal that would encourage school systems around the country to allow armed staff on school premises.

According to the report, the plan will signal the president's support for two bills currently in Congress as well as set up a commission to identify grant money for school systems that find a way to issue concealed carry permits to some staff members to help guard against school shootings.

The two bills currently being considered by Congress would improve the nation's background check system and authorize $50 million for school safety improvements.

The plan does not address a number of issues supported by gun control advocates, including a ban on bump stocks or raising the minimum age required to purchase a rifle to 21.
