The Committee for the Free World (CFW) was founded in 1981 by Midge Decter who was the executive director. CFW was a neoconservative grouping which had tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3) and began with funding of $125,000 from individuals and ultra-conservative foundations. Among the original funders were three of the major right-wing foundations: Sarah Scaife Foundation, John M. Olin Foundation, and Smith Richardson Foundation.
