Alright, a site set up to look like wikipedia, where they STATE they are a source referencing site, is blatantly progressive.
Another thing is that just because a group gives money to something like the CMDR doesn't mean they decide where the money goes.
If you would like the Rockefeller Foundation to consider funding your project—which must fit within one or more of the Rockefeller Foundation initiatives—please complete the following application.
The Rockefeller Foundation focuses its resources on five related issue areas and funds a portfolio of initiatives that work across these areas, linking and interlinking, to achieve meaningful and measurable impact.
The Rockefeller Foundation’s Developing Climate Change Resilience Initiative aims to catalyze attention, funding and action to promote resilience to climate change on several levels. We focus on three pivotal areas: Asian urban environments, African agriculture and US policy. We are creating models for action on climate change in cities—models that can be replicated and expanded in other regions. We are helping adapt African agriculture to cope with environmental changes. And we are promoting awareness and guiding funders and policymakers to support broader action on climate change resilience, nationally and internationally, to help poor and vulnerable people around the world.
New Drought-and-Virus-Resistant Cassava Seeds Are 400% More Productive
Americans face higher unemployment and fewer economic opportunities than at any point in recent history. Millions of American workers have been left economically insecure by the fraying of our social safety nets in recent decades, and these effects have only worsened as the economy has contracted in the last two years. Health care costs are often more than workers can afford, employers trim benefits, and the government no longer guarantees a safety net. Inequality and disparities have widened to historic proportions, intensifying among the working poor.
The Foundation’s Protecting American Workers’ Economic Security:
Campaign for American Workers initiative, recognizes that there is danger in the growth of economic insecurity, but there is also opportunity. We have the chance to reexamine federal priorities with regard to the US social contract. Our initiative focuses on three primary strategies:
* Promoting policies and tools to increase savings and retirement security
* Fostering demonstrations that ensure more secure and portable health care coverage
* Supporting evidence-based analysis of proposed and current policies on economic security of American workers, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged workers
The Foundation's Promoting Equitable, Sustainable Transportation initiative advocates for investment in affordable, environmentally-responsible transit. This initiative supports strategies at the national and local level. At the federal level, we are:
* Funding policy analysis and research that informs a new transportation policy for America.
* Encouraging national leaders and grassroots leaders to embrace a new policy agenda.
* Promoting and coordinating philanthropic participation in transportation work.
* At the same time, we are exploring state and local policy innovations. We are: Resourcing advocacy efforts to encourage state/metro reform.
* Building the internal capacity of state departments of transportation and metro planning organizations.
* Encouraging sustainability and equity through market and consumer levers.
New technologies and demographic, epidemiologic, and economic shifts are transforming health systems in countries around the world. There is now a window of opportunity to promote strategies that steer this transformation toward better health outcomes and financial protection through improved health systems performance and the expansion of universal health coverage in low- and middle-income countries. The Rockefeller Foundation’s Transforming Health Systems initiative employs four key funding strategies:
* Fostering health systems research and agenda setting for universal health coverage
* Enhancing professional capacity to plan and manage high-performing health systems
* Harnessing the resources of the private sector to finance and deliver health services
* Leveraging interoperable eHealth systems

This statement is not entirely true.
Which means it is not entirely false either. See how much easier it would be not to say anything instead of spending all that time saying nothing?
