Environmental
Working Group

and EWG Action Fund

In 2002, the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise filed a complaint with IRS against Environmental Working Group [read the complaint]. The Center called on the IRS [read the news release] to revoke EWG's non-profit status for alleged unlawful lobbying and political action, prompting the creation of the EWG Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) lobbying group, legally allowed to influence legislation.

Projects:

Self-description: EWG has three programs: Toxics & Human Health, Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resources. Each program uses the power of information--including government-funded data and independent lab results--to make the case for stronger policies that protect the environment and human health.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG), founded in 1993, fills a niche in the environmental community by focusing its unique strategy on toxics, agriculture and western lands issues. Our effective advocacy efforts are bolstered by extensive web databases and a 500,000-person email list, which have become major forces in online information distribution. EWG is a national organization with headquarters in Washington, DC, and offices in Oakland, CA and Ames, Iowa.

Actual: EWG, long an opponent of industrial agriculture and advocate for organic farming, uses huge foundation grants to spread anti-industry messages in an attempt to shape public opinion against corporations and capitalism.  In 1992, EWG formed the Clearinghouse for Environmental Advocacy and Research (CLEAR) to smear and destroy the wise use movement that supports the free market system.
 

Convoluted History:

Fictional beginning: Although Ken Cook told the New York Times that EWG was started in 1993, it began receiving foundation grants in 1989. Because EWG was not yet incorporated, it received grants through the IRS tax exemption of the Island Press, in Washington, DC. The small environmental book publisher had been created in 1979 by Mellon heiress Catherine Conover.

Hiding under the skirts: In 1984, Island Press reorganized as the Center for Resource Economics / Island Press, giving Ken Cook a job as "vice president for policy" from 1989 to 1993. Cook got $5 million in grants for EWG from 17 foundations.

Tides takes over: In 1993 EWG went under the umbrella of the Tides Foundation. Tides founder Drummond Pike became a permanent member of the Center for Resource Economics' board of directors, as well as a permanent board member of EWG. Catherine Conover remained a director of the Center for Resource Economics and one of the largest donors to Pike's Tides organizations. EWG was shifted to the newly-created Tides Center during a 1990s reorganization.

EWG emerged from the Tides umbrella in 1999 and incorporated in Washington, DC, but the Tides influence remains, with Drummond Pike ruling as its Chairman.

Earlier foundation grants to EWG reveal a long history of efforts to destroy industrial agriculture in the United States.
Below are samples from 1989 to 1999, in reverse order.

Look below at Grant 3. The Joyce Foundation gave the Environmental Working Group $1,620,000 "For work on 2002 Farm Bill," which predictably includes advocacy for less industrial food production by replacing it with conservation and more "organic food" subsidies.

The Joyce Foundation's 1999 Form 990 shows it owned investments of over $1.8 million in Canadian Wheat Board securities. Are they trying to profit by hurting American wheat farmers to benefit their investment in Canadian wheat using EWG as a catspaw?
The Joyce Foundation's 1999 Form 990 shows it owned investments of over $410,000 in General Nutrition Company, provider of vitamins, herbals, and vegetarian guides. Are they trying to profit by hurting traditional agriculture to benefit herbal growers using EWG as a catspaw?

There is no separation between Joyce Foundation executives handling charitable and investment duties: four Joyce staffers spend part time investing the foundation's money and part time deciding who gets the profits from those investments. Joyce Foundation has the capability to target its donations to help their investments - and harm companies they disapprove of.

Other foundations donating to Environmental Working Group have similar situations.
