SF Jewish Federation bankrolls these hate groups
An extensive review ...of the Federation’s tax filings shows that the Jewish Community Federation
of San Francisco and the Helen Diller Family Foundation
, which the former controls and which it used to fund Canary Mission, have bankrolled
an extensive list of extremist, far-right, anti-Muslim organisations
in recent years.
The systematic pattern of financially supporting hate groups appears to also violate the SF Federation’s own guidelines, which specify that it will not fund organisations that “endorse or promote anti-Semitism, other forms of bigotry, violence or other extremist views.”
Among the extremist, radical right-wing, and anti-Muslim groups that received funds from the SF Federation, both directly and through the Diller Foundation, and some of which have received substantial and repeated grants over the years, include: Project Veritas, The AMCHA Initiative
, The American Freedom Law Center
, the American Freedom Defense Initiative
, The David Horowitz Freedom Center
, and the work of Islamophobic Dutch politician Geert Wilders (through the International Freedom Alliance Foundation
). Others include the Clarion Fund
, the Center for Security Policy
(Frank Gaffney), the Middle East Forum
(Daniel Pipes), the Tea Party Patriots Foundation
, and the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies
, which the Federation gave $100,000 in 2016, is responsible for falsifying sexual misconduct allegations against Roy Moore last year to The Washington Post in hopes of entrapping the liberal mainstream media
The AMCHA Initiative
, which received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the SF Federation
and the Diller Foundation
in recent years, operates similarly to Canary Mission, except that it primarily goes after faculty, not students.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center
, which has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in recent years, has been condemned by the Southern Poverty Law Center as promoting anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant attitudes.

The American Freedom Law Center
and Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative
both target Islam as a threat to Western civilization
. The former advances “anti-Sharia” legislation and filed an amicus brief in support of Trump’s Muslim ban. The latter, which has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim hate group, was responsible for Islamophobic bus campaigns in several cities, and has been represented by the American Freedom Law Center.
