The Wallace Global Fund is a major private foundation controlled by the family of former U.S. Vice President Henry Wallace that funds left-of-center “activities and movements that are global or national in scope.”  Areas in which the Wallace Global Fund highlights its funding include divesting from traditional energy sources, supporting left-wing media projects, and government regulation of the internet.  Left-of-center organizations that the fund has given to include Planned Parenthood Federation of America, As You Sow, and People for the American Way Foundation. 
The Wallace Global Fund is named after Henry A. Wallace, a politician who served as the 33rd vice president of the United States under Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  During his time in office, Wallace was a champion of the progressive New Deal,  gaining a reputation as a left-wing firebrand. He was removed from the Democratic ticket in 1944 for being too far left, and in 1948, he challenged President Harry Truman as the nominee of the far-left Progressive Party.
The Wallace Global Fund has given $605,000 to the environmentalist group 350.org since 2013.  350.org opposes the use of traditional energy sources such as coal, oil, and gas.  The funds from the Wallace Global Fund were earmarked for campaigns demanding action to fight global warming and divestment from fossil fuels.  350.org partnered with Bold Alliance, CREDO Mobile, and Oil Change International for the “Solar XL” project which opposes the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. 
The environmentalist law firm ClientEarth received $225,000 from the Wallace Global Fund since 2014.  In 2017, “ClientEarth was named the most effective environmental organization in the UK.”  ClientEarth pushes an anti-coal agenda seeking to get money managers and pensions to shift away from investing in coal and has brought lawsuits that prevented 15 powerplants from being built in Poland. 
Other environmental organizations to receive funding from the Wallace Global Fund include Oil Change International, Oregon Environmental Council, Rachel’s Network, Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, Greenpeace USA, and Union of Concerned Scientists. 
Left-of-Center Judicial Policy
The Wallace Global Fund gave the left-of-center judicial policy organization Alliance for Justice (AFJ) $225,000.  The fund has given $175,000 to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP).  The Wallace Global Fund has supported the Brennan Center for Justice with $315,000 in donations. 
The Wallace Global Fund has provided the New Venture Fund (NVF) and projects it backs with $818,000 in funding.  NVF is a funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit that caters to left-of-center clients. Two of Wallace Global Fund’s donations to NVF were earmarked for the Youth Engagement Fund, a project of NVF that was created by Democracy Alliance, a network of highly influential funders within the Democratic Party and the political left.  Another donation went to Guns Down to back gun control.  
The Tides Center received $745,000 from the Wallace Global Fund since 2013.  The Tides Center is a subsidiary entity of the Tides Foundation, a donor-advised fund for left-of-center causes. Three of the grants from the fund that went through the Tides Center went to Open MIC, which uses “shareholder engagement” to pressure companies to support net neutrality and reject mergers. 
Other Left-of-Center Organizations
The Institute for Policy Studies, a far-left D.C. think tank, has received over $500,000 from the Wallace Global Fund.  The institute’s connection to left-wing causes date back to when its founders left the Democratic Kennedy Administration and supported the anti-war movement in the 1960s. 
Color of Change received $220,000 from the Wallace Global Fund.  Color of Change was the brainchild of Van Jones and James Rucker and was supposed to be “MoveOn for black people.”  Color of Change pushes a left-wing agenda of higher taxes, socialized healthcare, and gun control. 
The Wallace Global Fund has backed left-wing media outlets. Mother Jones, a left-of-center bi-monthly magazine published by Foundation for National Progress, received $120,000 from the fund between 2013 and 2015.  The Media Consortium, a project of Foundation for National Progress which brings together a network of left-of-center media outlets, collected $210,000 from the Wallace Global Fund.  The fund also gave $225,000 to Media Matters for America, which attacks right-of-center media outlets.
