Founding of the IED

The IED was first funded by a handful of left-wing intellectuals (professors, lawyers, journalists, authors) in 2006 and was shaped by an initial study undertaken by them as early as 2005.

IED was founded with a view of creating a broad base of international support for the organization. IED received funds from people in Canada, India, Europe, etc. and is meant to distribute funds to other organizations (where money goes).

IED's first president is the university professor Bertell Ollman.

Funding of domestic non-governmental organisations

The IED is meant to regularly provide funding to American non-governmental organisations operating in the USA for the promotion, development and re-establishment of USA's own democracy. It does not directly fund any political party.


  • Its motto is "Supporting the democracy in the country that needs it most - the USA".
