The Sierra Club has been a long time supporter of campaign finance reform and demanding full disclosure from candidates campaign contributions. But who are their donors?

According to the Senate EPW Committee: "We don't know, and not many do know because groups like the Sierra Club are not required to disclose names. As a result, only a small select group of people knows the answer. In fact, even the executive director of the Sierra Club is left out in the dark. According to the Los Angeles Times, 'As president of the board, Fahn said, he is supposed to be told the identities of the anonymous donors, as is the board's treasurer. "But I don't know the names of these donors," Fahn said. "I'm not dying to know."'

"The Los Angeles Times checked the Sierra Club's IRS records and found some astounding numbers, but no names. The paper states, 'Tax forms filed with the Internal Revenue Service show that the Sierra Club Foundation received two enormous windfalls from anonymous donors: $47.9 million in 2000 and $53.6 million in 2001. Each of these donations was more than double the amount of all funds raised in each of the previous four years.'"
