From the Shimer Alumni Allaince:
"The reason for the April 10 date was because on April 11th Parker's foundation - the free-market "Aequus Institute" - was having a board meeting. The suggestion was clear enough: vote to change the mission or lose any future funding from Aequus and be in breach of a legal contract."

HERITAGE FOUNDATION Washington, DC 2007 $100,000 (And the same amount for years 2001-2006) (You really should look at the rest of their recipients) http://www.heritage.org /
