The Stuart Family Foundation is a conservative foundation set up by Robert D. Stuart Jr., former chairman of the Quaker Oats Company and U.S. ambassador to Norway under Ronald Reagan , in 1986.
According to the Robert D. Stuart Jr, the foundation is 'dedicated to strengthening America, at home and abroad':
- 'We support the mechanisms that have made America a great nation: the core values of its civil society, its honest and efficient government, and its strong national defense. All of our major program areas—media, civic education, national security and federal campaign finance—reflect this philosophy.'
Its goal is tom 'to influence public policy and bolster high ethical values and patriotism'.
The Stuart Family Foundation funds a range of causes. These include the Parents Television Council and Common Sense Media, both of which encourage 'family-friendly programming'.
The bulk of the grants awarded by the foundation however support security, counter-terrorism and foreign policy groups, such as the the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Heritage Foundation, the Manhattan Institute, Jamestown Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute. Since 2011, they have also repeatedly provided funding to the 'counter-extremism' think-tank Quilliam Foundation.
