Funders

Donors to Constitutional Accountability Center

The largest known donor ($5 million) to the Constitutional Accountability Center is Fidelity Investments Charitable Gift Fund, a donor-advised fund (DAF) provider; as such, Fidelity should not be considered the actual donor, since the DAF provider’s funds originate with another, unknown donor (or set of donors) which is responsible for directing Fidelity to pass that donor’s grants along to the Constitutional Accountability Center. [1]

Liberal billionaire George Soros has also granted at least $2.45 million to the Constitutional Accountability Center through his Foundation to Promote Open Society, one of two major grantmaking entities in the so-called Open Society Network. [2]

The left-of-center William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has granted at least $300,000 to the Constitutional Accountability Center. [3]
