The Buckeye Institute is a right-wing policy and communications group that has promoted so-called “right-to-work” laws that result in lower wages, advocated against Medicaid expansion, and fear mongered about the effects of increasing the minimum wage.

Billionaire Charles Koch is a major funder of the Buckeye Institute. The Buckeye Institute received just over $650,000 from the Charles Koch Foundation between 2016 and 2020, including a $250,000 grant in 2018, and a $100,000 grant in 2019. It additionally received over $300,000 from the Charles Koch Institute between 2018 and 2022, the bulk of that money coming from a $212,000 grant in 2020 and a $50,000 grant in 2021. The Buckeye Institute is also an affiliate member of the Koch-linked State Policy Network.
