New Search Tool Traces Sources of ‘Dark Money’
August 4, 2016 | Grantee News | Journalism & Media

An online tool by the MacArthur-supported Center for Public Integrity is designed to shed light on the flow of “dark money” through nonprofits into political campaigns. The new search tool scans 850,000 forms from about 250,000 nonprofits that were recently released in electronic format by the IRS, making $170 billion reported over five years searchable. Nonprofits, while not required to publicly disclose donors, are required to report grants given to other nonprofits.
