Back in November, Bernie Schoenburg of the Springfield Register Star reported that Illinois Policy Institute, a 501(c)(3) policy organization received $500,000 from GOP candidate Bruce Rauner.
Here are some of the screenshots that confirm that the John Tillman’s Illinois Policy Institute received the donations from the Bruce Rauner Family Foundation. Some of those donations are reflected here (Guidestar.com):
Dan Proft is also a “senior fellow” of the Illinois Policy Institute and is a paid consultant and partner of the Illinois Policy Institute’s sister organization, the Illinois Opportunity Project. Illinois Opportunity Project is a 501(c)(4) organization with cloaked donors. It is not known whether Bruce Rauner has donated to the Illinois Opportunity Project.
According to Guidestar, Jack Roeser’s Family Taxpayer Network also received $400,000 and Roeser’s group also received another $40,000 from Bruce Rauner and his wife to his Renaissance PAC.
