How Much is Ashley Biden Worth?
President Joe Biden’s youngest daughter, Ashley, made headlines in mid-March 2022 when it was revealed by The New York Times that a diary written by the first-daughter was purchased by the group Project Veritas, a conservative activist group headed by James O’Keefe. The diary sold for $40,000, a source with “knowledge of the case,” told the Times, according to Business Insider. Biden’s lawyers did not reply to the news outlet’s request for comment.

The Early Years of Ashley Biden
After graduating from a private high school in Delaware, she earned a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology at Tulane University. She went on to earn a master’s degree in social work from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice, according to an article from Marie Claire.
From graduation through 2012, Biden worked in a variety of positions related to clinical support, social work, education and employment. Her roles included clinical support staff at Philadelphia’s Northwestern Human Services Children’s Reach Clinic, education and employment specialist for West End Neighborhood House and employment education liaison for the state of Pennsylvania.
In 2012, she began working as managing director of the non-profit Delaware Center of Justice, according to Bugle.com. In 2014, she was promoted to executive director of the organization. According to CauseIQ.com, the current executive director, David Bever, is listed as earning just $8,333, although the past executive director in 2019 earned $22,083, so leadership salaries vary wildly.
Biden as a Business Owner
In 2017, Biden founded a clothing brand called Livelihood, which manufactured “supersoft organic cotton hoodies,” with proceeds to benefit community development and economic inequities in Delaware. The first — and only — run of 3,400 hoodies sold out on the flash e-commerce site Gilt. Livelihood donated $25,000 to the Livelihood Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation, according to Biography.com. Through the company, Ashley designed the uniforms for the staff of Hamilton Hotel, as well. In exchange, the hotel made a $15,000 donation to Livelihood.
