Prager University isn't an actual accredited university, but a Sherman Oaks, California-based media organization advocating “Judeo-Christian values” and known for short videos espousing conservative viewpoints. Under tax rules for nonprofits, it doesn't disclose the sources of its funding.
In 2018, the latest year for which required IRS filings are available, Prager reported it raised $17.9 million, up from $10.2 million the previous year. In its 2020 annual report it reported revenues “estimated” at $28 million.
In 2020, Prager reported, its videos were watched one billion times.
Prager says it raises 40% of its funding online. Progressive media and advocacy groups have asserted it receives significant support from religious conservatives with ties to the oil industry. The Daily Dot notes that two Texans who made a fortune in fracking were on the Prager board in 2016 and 2017.
