Jack and Mary Dewitt Foundation

The DeWitt Families Conduit Foundation is funded by the DeWitt family, which made its fortune via Bill and Marvin DeWitt’s founding of Bill Mar Foods (a turkey, cow, pig, and chicken slaughterhouse operation) that was purchased by Sara Lee (a major animal slaughtering company) in 1987. The foundation donates to many conservative churches and funds “religious right” groups including those listed below as well as the John Guest Evangelistic Team (Russ Bellant, The Religious Right in Michigan Politics, Americans for Religious Liberty, 1996).
