FreedomWorks is a conservative 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), 527 non-profit organization based in Washington D.C.

FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity both originated from a campaign called Citizens for a Sound Economy, which split in two in 2004. Citizens for a Sound Economy was founded by businessman David Koch (Koch Industries), who has also promoted libertarian think tanks (Cato Institute and Reason Foundation). Citizens for a Sound Economy (grassroots machine) merged with Empower America (policy expertise) in 2004 and was renamed FreedomWorks, with Dick Armey, Jack Kemp and C. Boyden Gray serving as co-chairmen, Bill Bennett focusing on school choice as a Senior Fellow, and Matt Kibbe as President and CEO. Empower America was founded in 1993 by William Bennett, former Secretary of HUD Jack Kemp, former Ambassador Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, and former Republican U.S. Representative from Minnesota (1980-1992) Vin Weber. [1]

FreedomWorks was involved in orchestrating the 2009 anti-Obama, anti-tax "tea parties".
