Our Vision: The Bradley Impact Fund envisions a robust, national community of informed donors and partners who support and fund organizations that restore, strengthen, and protect America’s founding principles and institutions.

Our Guiding Principles:

  • Constitutional Order - Fidelity to the Constitution, with its principles of limited government, federalism, separation of powers, and individual liberties.

  • Free Markets - Commitment to free markets that allow for private enterprise, entrepreneurship, and voluntary exchange within the rule of law.

  • Civil Society - Commitment to the fundamental institutions of civil society that cultivate individuals capable of self-governance.

  • Informed Citizens - Dedication to the formation of informed and capable citizens.

  • Donor Intent - Protection of donor intent.

We are aligned with and inspired by  The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation’s mission to restore, strengthen, and protect the principles and institutions of American exceptionalism. The Foundation’s 30 years of philanthropic expertise and vetted portfolio of nonprofit organizations are resources available to our dynamic community.
