Guide to Ethical Purchasing: Company Political Contributions and Endorsements

This listing is based on political contributions (mostly in the 2016 election) and not lobbying. Data gathered from the Center for Responsive Politics (www.opensecrets.org), www.campaignmoney.com, and the Federal Election Commission (www.fec.gov).  Sometimes it’s difficult to gauge where PAC money is going and who is contributing, and this list may not be completely accurate (or inclusive) so feel free to contact admin@ethicalpurchasing.info if you have additional information. 

For a list of firms that conduct business with Trump, please follow this link

Red:  Companies that contributed to Trump/Pence campaign (or Ted Cruz), whose CEO’s publicly endorsed Trump, and/or who support more extremist right-wing policies/organizations

Yellow:   Companies who have contributed to both GOP/Democrat candidates.  Those closer to the red zone favor GOP candidates.

Green:  Companies who contributed to HRC and/or other Democrat candidates, and/or whose CEOs who have publicly supported HRC and/or liberal causes.
