Freedom Partners Shared Services

According to its website, “Freedom Partners Shared Services was founded in 2011 as the Center for Shared Services and was built to support freedom focused organizations with the back-office services they need.”[1] Sources inside the Koch network elaborated to Politico that the Center for Shared Services is “a nonprofit recruiter and administrative support team for other Koch-backed groups, which provides assistance with everything from scouting office space to accounting to furniture and security.” The group received $7 million from Freedom Partners Action Fund in 2013.[2]

Per the organization’s website, the Center for Shared Services changed its name to Freedom Partners Shared Services on July 1, 2015.[3] Politico reported in December 2015 that the organization had been “rolled into [the broader] Freedom Partners” organization at that point.[4]
