One reason the ncf, a donor-advised fund, has been so successful is that it ensures anonymity for its philanthropists.
The ncf was created, back in 1982 or so, to maximize hard right-wing evangelical Christian philanthropic giving.
The ncf is now the 12th biggest charitable foundation in America that raises money from private sources.
Since its founding, the ncf has given away over $4.3 billion, $2.5 billion of it in the last three years.
From 2001-12, the ncf gave $163,384,998 to leading anti-LGBT organizations.
The ncf has multiple overlapping legal entities and holding companies, but at the core is a huge donor-advised fund.
The ncf gave away $601,841,675 in 2012—and is estimated to have given out $670 million in 2013.
