Description: a consortium of 7 large foundations with combined assets of $21 billion and substantial investments in shares of oil and gas corporations other than Exxon Mobil. The primary funder of the key attack group in the anti-Exxon Mobil campaign, Texas Fund for Energy and Environmental Education.

In their own words: "The Energy Foundation was launched in 1991 by The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation (assets $4.1 billion), The Pew Charitable Trusts (assets $2.8 billion), and The Rockefeller Foundation (assets $3.1 billion). The Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation (assets $124.9 million) joined as a funding partner in 1996, and The McKnight Foundation (assets $1.9 billion) joined in 1998. In 1999, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation (assets $6.2 billion) joined to support two programs: the U.S. Clean Energy Program and the China Sustainable Energy Program. In 2001, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (assets $2.7 billion) joined the Energy Foundation." (asset amounts added)
