Who are the 2 Major Donors to NOM?

The HRC site did a piece about NOM's funding. While they lost money in their efforts to stop marriage equality, we learned that 2 donors footed 75% of NOM's funding.

Here more:
NOM’s 2011 990 is available here. In addition to illustrating that more than $4.7 million of NOM’s total $6.2 million reported came from just two mysterious mega-donors, the documents also reveal some interesting information about NOM’s closest affiliates. For example, NOM paid $870,000 to CC Advertising – a group HRC recently filed an FCC complaint against for spamming unsuspecting cell phone users with anti-gay, anti-Obama text messages. The organization also paid nearly $375,000 to Frank Schubert, their ad guru who makes his living largely off of promoting anti-LGBT propaganda.

NOM spent upwards of $5.7 million on attempts to prevent marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, and Washington; write discrimination in Minnesota’s constitution; and politicize Iowa’s judicial system. Voters in all five states soundly rejected NOM’s discriminatory messaging. The anti-gay organization remains embroiled in several legal battles over revealing the identities of the few mega-donors who fund their work.
So who are this donors? I would like to know, don't you?

If we look at past history it's likely that the Roman Catholic Church and the Mormon Church are the two big donors.
