Clarion Project

A nonprofit based in New York City, the Clarion Project - formerly the Clarion Fund - describes itself as an organization that seeks to “expos[e] the dangers of Islamic extremism." To further their efforts, the Clarion Project has produced several anti-Muslim films — most notably, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” "Iranium," and “The Third Jihad." According to the organization's tax filings, Clarion Project's revenue in 2012 was $1,374,578. 

Clarion Project is well known for receiving more than $17 million from Donors Capital Fund in 2008. The $17 million, provided by a single source helped pay for a DVD Clarion distributed called “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” to more than 28 million swing-state voters before the 2008 presidential election. Donors Capital Fund continues to serve as the largest donor to Clarion. 

A number of key players of the Islamophobia network serve on the advisory board of the Clarion Project, including Frank Gaffney, Zuhdi Jasser, and Daniel Pipes.
