DonorsTrust is a charitable 501(c)(3) donor advised fund that provides funding to a variety of non-profits and conservative causes. [1] These include political advocacy groups, think tanks, and universities.[2][3] It also donates to groups that support climate change denial.[4] [5] DonorsTrust offers anonymity to wealthy donors who do not want to make their donations publicly.[6][7][8] The organization assures its conservative donors that their donated funds will never be used to support liberal causes.[7]

History[edit]

DonorsTrust was established in 1999 with a stated goal of "supporting organizations that promote liberty". It relies on donors from charitable foundations and independent individuals and funds numerous projects, including the Franklin Center.[9] As of 2013, the DonorsTrust has distributed more than $400 million to over 1,000 conservative and libertarian groups.[6]
