Zandar is partially correct

Zandar Versus The Stupid: In Which Zandar Answers Your Burning Questions:
"Because the Koch brothers would rather give $100k to get Republicans to reduce taxes on the Kochs and Koch Industries by a lot more than $200 million, frankly. It's about power."

It is also about disguising that power and pretending that government doesn't work. If the funding came from the government then the latter would be shown to be false and the Koch brothers wouldn't be able to be portrayed as philanthropists. The Koch brothers would be happier if they were completely invisible (how many people had heard of them 10 years ago) but if they can't be invisible then they want to have something shiny to wave in front of folks when there is negative press.
