MediaTransparency was a left leaning political project begun in 1999 which monitors the financial ties of conservative think tanks to conservative foundations in the United States. Its database tracks over 50,000 grants awarded since 1985, which total more than $3.2 billion USD. It was run by Cursor, Inc. before being acquired by Media Matters for America in 2008.[1]

They are dedicated to "news, opinion, analysis and investigative data related to links between conservative philanthropies and the organizations and people they fund, and their influence in the media."[2]
