It Turns Out NOM is Funded Almost Entirely by Only Two Donors
This revelation is not extraordinary for NOM, whose existence from the very beginning has been dependent upon large contributions from a small pool of big-money, mostly anonymous donors. But what’s different about this past funding cycle is how much narrower the margin is between $100 contributions and $1 million contributions. And based on NOM’s annual financial reporting to the IRS over the past four years, it appears as though that gap has narrowed over time.
The very nature of NOM’s funding structure has made critics chide its self-description as a “grassroots organization.”
The National Organization for Marriage is hardly the grassroots organization it touts itself to be. There are no throngs of supporters for their cause. There is no groundswell of donations to keep on fighting against LGBT Americans. In reality the group is merely a front for just two wealthy individuals obsessed with homosexuality.
It should come as absolutely not surprise to anybody that those two donors have long been rumored to be the Mormon Church and the Catholic Church.
