The Center for Global Development (CGD) was founded in 2001 and describes itself as 'an independent, not-for-profit think tank that works to reduce global poverty and inequality by encouraging policy change in the U.S. and other rich countries through rigorous research and active engagement with the policy community'[1].

The Center works to influence not only the policies and practices of countries but also global institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization[2]. The Center is supported by a significant contributions from private foundations, international organizations, governments, corporations and individuals and has an annual operating budget of more than $6 million.

Goldman Sachs
Hewlett FoundationHuge foundation setting the agenda by funding lots of deep state projects.
MicrosoftStarted in 1975 with Paul Allen, Bill Gates developed Microsoft from a operating system maker of computers into one of the most prolific companies of all time, valued over $1 trillion, 3rd most valuable in the world. MS has over a billion in fines from corruption, mass surveillance violations & tax evasion. MS has market shares in dozens of markets, leading in the Platformization-epidemic of the 2010s started by big tech. It was the first partner in the NSA-PRISM program.
Norway/Ministry of Foreign AffairsA significant donor to NGOs and planning organizations. Many of the recipients dovetail with NATO objectives like regime changes and controlling the narrative.
Open PhilanthropyGrant maker funneling deep state money among other things to pandemic planning. Financed Event 201.
Open Society FoundationsA NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.
Rockefeller Brothers FundRockefeller family "philanthropic" fund. One of the CIA's favorite cut-outs during the Cold War.
Rockefeller Foundation
World Bank
