New Regular Feature from BRC Capital Research Center's Foundation Watch

Capital Research Center's Foundation Watch

During a recent presentation at a local OHV club meeting, I was struck by an assumption that a lot of folks make about how these radical anti-recreation groups are funded. What assumption? That these litigious greenie groups are funded by taxpayer money.

While it is true that many greenie groups are experts at leveraging the available grant programs and many of them are "subsidized" by being a tax exempt organization. (BRC is also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on membership dues and donations. Don't forget that donations are tax-deductible. Click here to join or donate.) 

What most people don't realize is the vast majority of the funding these groups get is from foundations. That's why we often use the phrase "foundation funded anti-recreation groups."

We've decided to forward to you a newsletter that is produced by Capital Research Center. Every month or so, the Capital Research Center sends out their Foundation Watch newsletter, and we wanted to make sure this valuable information is available to our members and supporters.

And with that we are pleased to forward the March 2012 edition of Foundation Watch. In this edition Foundation Watch takes a look at the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, a major funding source for highly litigious and politically active "environmental" organizations.

You can learn more about the fine work Capital Research Center does on their website at www.capitalresearch.org.

The foundation also funds environmental groups. Among them are Nature Conservancy ($17,549,958 since 1999); Friends of the Earth ($5,425,733 since 1999); World Resources Institute ($3,307,372 since 1999); Environmental Defense Fund ($1,668,000 since 1999); and Sierra Club Foundation ($1,617,181 since 1999).

Enjoy!
