Type: Private Family Foundation
The Mirowski Family Foundation is a private tax-exempt family foundation established in 1997. The Foundation has no public presence and does not provide any mission statement on its financial documents. Over the years it has funded an array of causes, including health and various Jewish and pro-Israel groups. Recipients include Oxfam, Planned Parenthood, Princeton University, and the Birthright Israel Foundation.
Between 2014 to 2016, the Mirowski Family Foundation’s single largest annual donation has been to the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), a group mired in criticism for systematically attempting to misinform the American public about Islam, Muslims, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which it is most concerned with. Among CAMERA’s more embarrassing indulgences was its coordinated attempt to infiltrate Wikipedia’s editorial process to achieve its advocacy goals for which it was publicly censured. Overall, the Mirowski Family Foundation granted more than $1.1 million to anti-Muslim groups between 2014 and 2016, including groups such as Americans for Peace and Tolerance, and the Middle East Media Research Institute.
