The Jaquelin Hume Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization "support[ing] free-market solutions to education reform," and funds many conservative and libertarian organizations.[1] [2] Founded in 1962 and headquartered in San Francisco, Jaquelin Hume began funding various free-market initiatives and started focusing its money more specifically in education reform "including charter schools, vouchers, standards and curricula," in 1998.[2] Below are links to its annual IRS Form 990s, which list the organizations it has funded since 1999. This article is a breakout of the State Policy Network article. Please see State Policy Network for more.

About ALEC
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.

Larger Jaquelin Hume Foundation grants go to ALEC members like SPN, the Heritage Foundation which received $1,725,000 between 1999 and 2011, Institute for Humane Studies, and the Manhattan Institute. (TPPF).[3]
