Meet the Show-Me Institute

The Show-Me Institute (SMI) is often regarded as a Missouri-focused organization formed and funded to advance the extreme right-wing agenda of billionaire Rex Sinquefield.  But Progress Missouri's research shows that the organization is actually part of a much larger web of 'belief tanks' called the State Policy Network (SPN).  The Show‐Me Institute has also received significant funding from the Donors Capital Fund, which is also connected to the notorious Koch Brothers, and other out‐of‐state right‐wing organizations such as the Roe Foundation and the Cato Institute.
