Perriello, an ex-diplomat in the Obama administration and former congressman, plays a pivotal role in overseeing Open Society’s giving operations. The society is part of the larger Open Society Foundations network, which, in 2021, shelled out roughly $140 million to boost liberal causes, according to tax forms.
Governing for Impact, which discloses Perriello as a board member on its website, has boasted in internal memos about its success in reversing Trump-era policies related to climate, education, labor, housing, and healthcare. GFI’s website fell quietly under the radar until a Fox News report surfaced on its prior efforts to recruit talent through Harvard Law School’s website.
GFI’s executive director is Rachael Klarman, a Harvard Law School graduate who used to be a policy analyst for Democracy Forward, a liberal advocacy group chaired by Democratic lawyer Marc Elias. Since 2019, Open Society and Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society, a group in the OSF network, have steered roughly $17.45 million to GFI, records show.
