  • HSUS Revenue Sinks $25 Million

    Just in time for Halloween, the Humane Society of the United States released something pretty scary: Its tax return for 2018.  It was a rough year financially for HSUS (no relation to local humane societies that run pet shelters). Its revenues declined drastically, which is expected after the high-profile resignation of CEO Wayne Pacelle in […]

  • Vegan Group Tries to Silence Nutrition Research

    For years, the so-called “Physicians Committee” for Responsible Medicine, a PETA-linked organization that represents less than 1% of America’s medical doctors, has used junk science studies to push veganism.

    The so-called “creator of the Internet” and former Vice President Al Gore is trying to find new relevance–and fortune–with fake meat. It starts with the World Resources Institute. WRI, which has received funding from a host of wealthy, radical environmental foundations, conducts studies concerning climate change that often come to panic-inducing conclusions. Gore was on […]

  • Ad: Want This in Your BLT?

    As part of our effort to educate the public on the contents of “plant- based” meat, we have placed an ad in USA Today.

About Activist Facts

Activist Facts, a project of the Center for Organizational Research and Education, provides the public and media with in-depth profiles of think tanks, activist groups, and foundations, along with information about the sources of their funding.

Some of these organizations provide a responsible public service. But some, despite their innocent-sounding names, are financial Goliaths that use junk science, intimidation tactics, and even threats of violence to push their radical agendas. We’ve analyzed over 500,000 pages of IRS records to bring you a comprehensive snapshot of where their money comes from, tracking more than $800 million to date.

We also offer valuable information about hundreds of deep-pocketed foundations, activist celebrities, and other key players in the animal rights, “food police,” and eco-terrorism movements.
