Campaign for America's Future is mapped on Muckety.

Self-Description: Mission: To promote the common good and welfare of the general public by educating the public and by supporting public efforts at reform of economic and social conditions.
Program:
Proposed, explored, and promoted new economic ideas to address pressing economic and social problems.

Actual: Labor-dominated lobbying and electoral network heavily influenced by progressive plutocrats and secret donors working on anti-corporate, anti-military, welfare-state, and other "progressive" programs. Incubator for the Apollo Project. Documentation in Ron Arnold's "Freezing in the Dark."
Brief history:
Although the
Campaign for America's Future was registered by founder Robert Borosage in 1990, it did not receive its IRS exempt status until 1994 and did not formally launch until 1996.
The organization was solely Borosage's creation, even though Roger Hickey, formerly of the labor union think tank, the Economic Policy Institute, is credited as a co-founder.
Helped incubate the Apollo Alliance, now a project of Tides Center. Apollo's executive director, James Ringo, is paid by Institute for America's Future.

The 1996 launch of Campaign for America's Future was a spectacular show of left-wing depth and reach, touting 130 co-founders, each a notable in some sector of the American Left. The complete list of co-founders is posted on a special page:

An early (2004) diagram of donations to Campaign for America's Future shows:

Of these eighteen donors

  • eight are labor unions;

  • one is a unionized insurance company catering to union members.

  • four (Soros, Getty, and the Foos and Rapoport couples) are populist plutocrats;

  • three are Rockefeller institutions (the Philanthropic Collaborative is a project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors; actual donors are anonymous);

  • one, the biggest contributor, is a political action committee.

  • one, the second-largest donor, is a foundation specializing in anonymous donor advised funds; actual donors are invisible.

So we’re really looking at a labor-dominated lobbying and electoral network heavily influenced by progressive plutocrats and secret donors.

In effect, the Campaign for America's Future is an adversary Democratic Party network several notches to the left of the centrist Democratic Leadership Council.
