CSIS Releases Donors List for FY 2014

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has just released its donors list to the public.  The list, for donors who gave in fiscal year 2014, is divided into four categories: foundations, corporations, governments, and individuals.

Those listed are only those who have donated $5,000 or more.

Notably, CSIS gets major foreign government support, according to the disclosure, and receives more than $500,000 each from the governments of Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).  The US government also gave the think tank more than $500,000.  More than a dozen other foreign governments gave CSIS less than $500,000.

Here is a donations FAQ from CSIS.

CSIS was recently ranked as the world's top defense and national security think tank by the 2015 University of Pennsylvania think tank rankings.
