American Islamic Congress
The American Islamic Congress (AIC) describes itself as a ' nonprofit, non-religious, civil society development organization serving Muslims and Non-Muslims by promoting civil and human rights through advocacy, engagement and education.'
Writer Max Blumenthal has charged that 'the AIC is funded largely by a pool of right-wing donors responsible for bankrolling key players in America’s Islamophobia industry'.
Conservative donors such as the Klarman Family Foundation and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation have given large sums, the latter donating USD $325,000  to the AIC between 2005-2011, and another $100,000 between 2012-2015. 
The Klarman Family Foundation has funded American Islamic and Palestinian organisations, with the aim, Max Blumenthal argues, of driving "a wedge through mainstream Muslim-American organising".
AIC has refused to engage with mainstream Muslim civil rights groups and forbade 'members of its student arm, Project Nur, from discussing Palestine-related issues on campus'.
