AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Donations to the political party of Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders from conservative groups in the United States have tapered off significantly since 2015, documents published by the government on Wednesday show.

Wilders' Party for Freedom (PVV) received about 108,000 euros (93,733 pounds) from the conservative David Horowitz Freedom Center in 2015, and 22,000 in 2016, the documents showed. He received another 6,850 euros from New York-based FOL Inc in 2016.

From January 2017 to Feb. 22, 2017, the PVV received no donations from foreign or domestic donors, the documents showed.
