A prominent conservative parents' rights group working to reshape school boards across the country is mostly bankrolled by a handful of large contributions, federal tax records reveal. In the two years since its inception, Moms for Liberty (MFL) has emerged as a national force, boasting more than 200,000 members, or so-called "joyful warriors," and 200 chapters in 44 states. The 501(c)(4) "social welfare" nonprofit has a connected 501(c)(3) charity and several political action committees.

Although MFL purports to be a grassroots outfit "dedicated to fighting for the survival of America by unifying, educating and empowering parents to defend their parental rights at all levels of government," its IRS Form 990 suggests otherwise, revealing that in 2021, large mystery contributions provided much of the driving force behind the operation.

Moreover, MFL's sudden rise to prominence is largely attributed to the megaphones of right-wing pundits like Tucker Carlson and Glenn Beck, as well as Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, the state in which MFL was founded.
