Funders of the Left & Right

Funders of the Left & Right



This section of Discover The Networks examines the assets and the grant-making patterns of many foundations that are among the leading donors to leftist causes, and documents the degree to which donations made by such foundations exceed those made by their conservative counterparts. Moreover, this section examines the diverse and interrelated agendas of leftist foundations and the organizations they bankroll. These include such agendas as:

  • promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation
  • portraying Israel as an apartheid state that grievously violates the human rights of its Arab neighbors and residents
  • promoting the election of leftist political candidates throughout the United States
  • opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government, particularly the Patriot Act
  • depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral
  • advocating America’s unilateral disarmament and a steep reduction in its military spending
  • promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws
  • promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes
  • promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens
  • defending suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters
  • financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left
  • promoting socialized medicine in the United States
  • promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism, whose ultimate goal is the demolition of technological/industrial civilization
  • bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations
  • promoting racial and ethnic preferences in academia and the business world alike
  • promoting socialism as an economic system preferable to capitalism
