The Wyss Foundation is a private foundation established in 1998 by Swiss billionaire and former Synthes CEO Hansjorg Wyss, an environmentalist activist and former CEO of the controversial medical device manufacturer Synthes. [1] The private foundation, based in Washington, D.C., states that it is “dedicated to supporting innovative, lasting solutions that improve lives, empower communities, and strengthen connections to the land.” [2] According to the foundation’s 2017 tax forms, it reported total assets of $2.5 billion and $38 million in grants awarded that year.[3]

The Berger Action Fund, formerly the Wyss Action Fund, is the 501(c)(4) advocacy wing of the Wyss Foundation, a highly unusual arrangement for a private foundation. Wyss Foundation has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Berger Action Fund since its creation in 2007 as “payment” for “shared personnel and facilities.” [4] [5] [6] In April 2021, the New York Times criticized Berger Action Fund for donating $10.8 million between 2016 and 2017 to the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)(4) funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit part of a $731 million “dark money” network managed by Arabella Advisors, a consulting firm in Washington, DC. [7]

History and Mission

In 1998, Hansjorg Wyss established the Wyss Foundation to help ensure land conservation in the American West. The foundation states that its mission is “to [support] innovative, lasting solutions that improve lives, empower communities, and strengthen connections to the land.”[8] The foundation highlights a lifetime total of $175 million grants have been awarded to “help local communities, land trusts, and non-profit partners conserve nearly 14 million acres in the West for future generations.”[9]

In 2013, Hansjorg Wyss’ second foundation, the HJW Foundation, was dissolved and merged into the Wyss Foundation, transferring over $283 million in assets.[10] [11]

The Berger Action Fund, formerly the Wyss Action Fund, is the 501(c)(4) advocacy wing of the Wyss Foundation, a highly unusual arrangement for a private foundation. The two organizations are listed as related organizations in their IRS Form 990 filings. Between 2017 and 2018 Wyss Foundation paid $173,012 to the Berger Action Fund as “payment” for “shared personnel and facilities.” [12] [13] [14]

It was renamed “Berger Action Fund” in 2016. [15] The reason for the name change is unclear, but it appears to have been renamed for Susi Berger (née Susanna Ottilia Franziska Wyss), Hansjorg Wyss‘ sister-in-law. Berger (1938-2019) was a notable Swiss graphic artist who, with her husband Ueli (1937-2008), worked in art, interior design, and furniture design in Bern beginning in the 1960s. [16] [17]

Between 2010 and 2017, Berger granted $1,291,500 to New Venture Fund and $12,404,500 to Sixteen Thirty Fund. [18] In April 2021, the New York Times criticized Berger Action Fund for its grants to the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)(4) funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit part of a $731 million “dark money” network managed by Arabella Advisors, a consulting firm in Washington, DC. [19]

Connections to Arabella Advisors, The Hub Project

For more information, see The Hub Project

The Hub Project, a left-wing group created to aid Democrats in elections and sponsored by Arabella Advisors‘ $731 million “dark money” network through its Sixteen Thirty Fund, may have originated as a proposal by the Wyss Foundation.

According to a 2015 proposal entitled “A Plan for the Development of a Communications Hub Supporting The Wyss Foundation’s Core Issue Areas” prepared for the Wyss Foundation by Civitas Public Affairs Group, a liberal consulting firm, the foundation envisioned the creation of a “communications hub” meant to be established as an “independent organization with a fiscal sponsor” with the “flexibility to work across the spectrum of 501(c)(3), (h) election, and 501(c)(4) activities.” That sponsor needed to have “(c)(4) capacity” and the ability to set aside “15 to 25 percent of the budget for (c)(4) work funded by The Wyss Action Fund.” The Wyss Action Fund (renamed the “Berger Action Fund” in 2016) is the 501(c)(4) advocacy nonprofit arm of the Wyss Foundation, and responsible for funding the hub’s fiscal sponsor, another 501(c)(4) nonprofit. [20]

While the document does not name Arabella Advisors or its associated 501(c)(4) Sixteen Thirty Fund and 501(c)(3) New Venture Fund—the respective sponsors of the current Hub Project and Hub Education and Engagement Fund—few fiscal sponsorship structures of such scope existed in 2015 to support such a project. [21]

This “hub” was designed to “drive measurable change” and achieve “significant wins.” Its “core objective” was “to dramatically shift the public debate and policy positions of core decision makers” by developing “research-based message frames,” ultimately “leading to implementation of policy solutions at the local, state, and federal level.” As a hub, these goals would be largely driven by allied left-wing organizations in coalition with the Hub Project, which would provide campaign aid, research, and political advertising. [22]

Overseeing this was intended to be an advisory board “initially comprised of members of the The Wyss Foundation senior team and a representative from the fiscal sponsor.” The document also stresses the importance of distancing the “hub” from the Wyss Foundation, as “the hub’s independence will give the foundation appropriate separation from the hub’s work” (thereby avoiding scrutiny and the loss of its tax-exempt status) and “allow the hub to engage in a more robust way than it could if it was based within the foundation.” However, the hub would provide “quarterly updates for The Wyss Foundation identifying benchmarks that have been reached, challenges faced, and recommendations necessary” for achieving its annual objectives. [23]

The initial budget for this hub was $2,212,760 in 2015, rising to $4,122,175 in 2016, and $4,347,196 in 2017. In 2017, $800,000 of this budget was to be set aside for “original news content” and “earned media,” another $786,500 for research and “digital data management,” and $865,000 for “paid media and “creative design” work. [24] Whether these goals were met is unclear, as the Hub Project does not publicly release its internal budgets.

Grants from Wyss Foundation

The Wyss Foundation categorizes its philanthropic investments in three areas: Land, Communities, and Discovery. In the foundation’s 2013 tax returns, over $19 million in grants were awarded.

In 2016, the Wyss Foundation’s more notable gifts included three grants, totaling over $1 million, in support of civic participation; grants were in support of projects aimed at helping local and state governments provide voter registration services and studying why people choose not to vote.[26]

The Wyss Foundation is a major donor to the left-of-center New Venture Fund (formerly the Arabella Legacy Fund), a 501(c)(3) funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit that’s part of a $731 million “dark money” activist network run by the consultancy Arabella Advisors in Washington, DC. Between 2007 and 2018, the Wyss Foundation donated $37,712,600 to New Venture Fund, but it isn’t clear how that money was spent since the grant descriptions do not provide specific details about which New Venture Fund projects they supported. [27] Part of this sum came from the HJW Foundation (as in “Hansjorg Wyss”), a separate foundation associated with Hansjorg Wyss that was folded into the Wyss Foundation in 2013. [28]

Hansjorg Wyss is the chairman and principal funder of the Wyss Foundation, providing $35 million to the Foundation in 2017.[30] Wyss made his fortune as the CEO of medical device manufacturer Synthes, which was bought in 2012 by Johnson and Johnson.[31] In 2009, Synthes faced 52 felony counts stemming from allegations that it illegally experimented on patients, three of whom died.[32] The alleged conduct occurred from 2001 to 2004, in which patients were injected with the company’s bone-cement product, Norian, despite the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s refusal to approve the product. Four high-ranking executives pleaded guilty for the company’s crime of running unauthorized trials and promoting the product for unapproved uses, without conceding that they were involved in the crime. Wyss was not charged.[33]

The Wyss Foundation website does not list staff or board members, but according to the Foundation’s 2013 IRS informational return, the following individuals serve on the board and staff:[34]

  • Hansjorg Wyss serves as chairman.
  • John Leshy is the foundation’s vice chairman.
  • Joseph Fisher serves as treasurer.
  • Molly McUsic is the Wyss Foundation president.
  • Mary Killingsworth is the foundation’s vice president.

Current staff, including president Molly McUsic and vice chairman John Leshy, previously served in the Clinton and Obama administrations, respectively. Past and current consultants have also been connected to high-level positions of the Obama administration.[35]

In 2012 Kyle Herrig was listed among the Wyss Foundation’s top-paid employees (total compensation: $74,887) and again in 2013 (total compensation: $81,911). [36] Herrig has been a board member for the New Venture Fund since 2014, part of Arabella Advisors‘ $731 million “dark money” network and heavily funded by the Wyss Foundation; he now runs the left-of-center activist group Accountable.US, a former New Venture Fund project which controls a number of other former New Venture Fund projects including Restore Public Trust and American Oversight.
