Discover The Networks:

This section of Discover The Networks examines the immensely wealthy charitable foundations that provide financial backing for leftist groups and causes.

These foundations (sometimes called endowments or charitable trusts) are nongovernmental, nonprofit entities whose assets are provided by donors and managed by their own officials, who each year earmark portions of their assets for what they consider to be socially useful purposes.

The Discover The Networks database currently identifies more than 115 major foundations whose political and philanthropic orientations are generally Left, and whose combined assets exceed $90 billion. Many of the foundations described in this section are so large that entire cultural and political movements can be shaped by a single one of them.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center is a conservative foundation founded in 1988 by political activist David Horowitz and his long-time collaborator, co-author, and friend, Peter Collier. It was established with funding from conservative philanthropies, such as the Olin Foundation the Bradley Foundation and the Sarah Scaife Foundation.
