Charles Koch University Funding Database

From Greenpeace's report: KOCH POLLUTION ON CAMPUS: Academic Freedom Under Assault from Charles Koch's $50 million Campaign to Infiltrate Higher Education.

UPDATE: Listen to an interview with the report's author on WPKN's Between the Lines with Scott Harris and KPFK's Background Briefing with Ian Masters.

This interactive database allows users to find grant information between Koch private foundations and colleges and universities. Greenpeace found that from 2005-2013, the Koch brothers have spent over $68 million on 308 colleges and universities (updated from initial report finding of $50 million to 254 schools, 2005-2012). Data is sourced from 990 IRS tax filings provided by the Charles Koch Foundation, the now-defunct Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation, and the Fred C. and Mary R. Koch Foundation.
