Democracy Fund is a foundation created by eBay founder and deep state operator Pierre Omidyar in 2011, with the stated goal to confront "deep-rooted challenges in American democracy while defending against new threats".[1] Since 2014, Democracy Fund has invested more than $150 million in this.[2]

It finances numerous organizations as part of the establishment effort to control public opinion, and through this financing, nominally "bi-partisan", it is able to steer the "left" angle of opposition by strengthening the ones who promote the wanted narrative.

This foundation is funded by a multi-billionaire who bought and then suppressed the vast majority of the Edward Snowden leaks, by lavishly funding the Intercept magazine (but through his other foundations, not the Democracy Fund).

Noticeable funding priorities include black, women and other minority organizations, universities, and very many "independent" media initiatives.

Democracy Fund itself is associated with a 501(c)(4) organization, Democracy Fund Voice, which is permitted to intervene in elections.[3]

In addition to controlling the narrative, it gives grants to intelligence entities like the German Marshall Fund of the United States "To provide continued support to the Alliance for Securing Democracy at The German Marshall Fund...to identify and support the best methods of pushing back on foreign threats to our U.S. political system, whether they be through elections, misinformation, or attempts to interfere with our democratic institutions."[4]
