The Sixteen Thirty Fund (sometimes styled “1630 Fund”) is a left-of-center lobbying and advocacy organization founded in 2008.[1] Sixteen Thirty Fund often operates alongside its charitable “sister” nonprofit New Venture Fund, which provides similar funding and fiscal sponsorship services to center-left organizations. Both groups, along with the Hopewell Fund and Windward Fund,  are administered by Arabella Advisors, a Washington, D.C.-based philanthropy consulting firm that caters to left-leaning clients.

Both Sixteen Thirty Fund and New Venture Fund have been criticized as “dark money” organizations, serving as a way for left-leaning groups to anonymously funnel money toward various advocacy issues, such as attacking vulnerable Republicans or pushing state-level environmental restrictions. [2][3] In 2015, the fund provided millions in grants to 29 different organizations. That year, Sixteen Thirty Fund’s largest grant—exceeding $1.9 million—went to the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, the “educational” arm of the League of Conservation Voters, an organization activating and rallying environmentalists to political activism. [4]

The Sixteen Thirty Fund has been characterized as one of the “key groups founded to resist Trump” by the left-leaning Atlantic. [5]

Low-Profile Funding Activities

The Sixteen Thirty Fund keeps a low profile compared with comparable nonprofit organizations. The organization boasts a one-page website, no Facebook page and no Twitter account. The fund has received little news coverage in the past few years. What little press coverage to be found centered on the 2013 effort to recall Democratic sate legislators in Colorado over their votes on a controversial gun-control measure.

That year, Sixteen Thirty Fund donated $35,000 to a Colorado group founded to defended Democratic state Sen. Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) from a recall effort over her votes for more gun control in the state. [6] Giron lost the effort after only 44 percent voted to retain her. [7] During the same recall effort, Sixteen Thirty Fund donated another $35,000 to a group supporting Colorado state Sen. John Morse (D-Colorado Springs), who also supported stricter gun control. [8] Morse also lost the recall vote when 51 percent voted to oust him. [9]

In 2017, the Washington Free Beacon tied the Sixteen Thirty Fund to progressive efforts to hide big money fueling criticism of President Donald Trump’s nominees to several Cabinet-level posts. Targeted nominees included businessman Andy Puzder (who would later withdraw as nominee for Secretary of Labor) and Steven Mnuchin (later confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury). [10]

Another publication, Tax Analysts, noticed Sixteen Thirty Fund’s financial support for “Tax March” rallies planned to protest President Trump’s unwillingness to release his tax returns. It is unclear how much Sixteen Thirty Fund contributed to the march. [11]

Ballot Initiatives

On September 4, 2018, the Missouri-based Kansas City Star reported a $3 million donation from Sixteen Thirty Fund to Raise Up Missouri, a left-wing PAC seeking to raise the state’s minimum wage to $12 per hour through a 2018 ballot initiative. Sixteen Thirty Fund also reportedly gave $500,000 to the PAC in 2017, and an additional $500,000 to it in May 2018. [12]

2018 Midterm Election

The Sixteen Thirty Fund spent approximately $740,000 in independent expenditures and electioneering communications during the 2018 midterm election.[13]

Leadership

Eric Kessler, a former Clinton administration environmental policy staffer who also serves as principal of liberal philanthropic and investment strategy firm Arabella Advisors, is president of Sixteen Thirty Fund. [14] He additionally serves as the board chair for the New Venture Fund. [15] More than 100 progressive organizations boast connections to Kessler and the New Venture Fund. [16]

Board of Directors

In 2016 and 2017, the Sixteen Thirty Fund board of directors consists of Arabella Advisors principal Eric Kessler, Albright Stonebridge Group senior advisor Michael Madnik, Democratic Party consultant and former Hillary Clinton 2008 campaign spokesman Douglas Hattaway, Arabella Advisors chief financial officer Wilbur Priester, and Arabella Advisors general counsel Andrew Schulz. [17] [18]

Funding

The Sixteen Thirty Fund’s revenues grew 1,547 percent between 2009 and 2017.

In 2017, the Sixteen Thirty Fund reported revenues of nearly $79.6 million, expenditures of $46.9 million, and net assets of $39.9 million. [19] This represented a growth of 274 percent in revenues from 2016 to 2017.

In 2016, the Sixteen Thirty Fund reported revenues of $21.3 million, expenditures of $19.7 million, and net assets of $7.2 million. [20]

In 2009, the Sixteen Thirty Fund reported revenues of $4.8 million, expenditures of $4.4 million, and net assets totaling $447,394. [21]

Sources of Funding

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the Sixteen Thirty Fund received $860,000 from four labor unions in 2015 and 2016, including the AFL-CIO and the National Education Association. [22]

Sixteen Thirty Fund also received over $4.5 million from the Atlantic Philanthropies, a now-defunct Bermuda-based philanthropic enterprise that funded left-of-center organizations. [23] Other known funders of Sixteen Thirty include the Tides Foundation. [24]
