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.
