Randolph Foundation

The New York-based Randolph Foundation was originally a trust of the Smith Richardson Foundation but became its own distinct entity around 1993. The foundation has granted money to a number of organizations in the inner core of the U.S. Islamophobia Network.

Between 2011 and 2013, the foundation provided $140,000 in funds to groups dedicated to spreading anti-Islam bias. Recipients of these grants include the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the Middle East Forum, and the Middle East Media Research Institute.
