Areas of Impact
Strategic, coordinated philanthropy that
advances conservative values
from ideas to impact.
For more than 30 years, Bradley has carried forward the Bradley brothers’ intent to strengthen American institutions, principles and values. Our vision and our mission reflect that intent. To advance strategic, coordinated philanthropy, Bradley adheres to four distinct yet connected guiding principles in our grantmaking. These are the four areas of impact in which conservative donors can make the greatest difference in protecting and preserving American values now and for future generations to come.
We believe the unique political system envisioned by our country’s founders must be preserved to secure individual freedom and give American citizens room to solve problems effectively on their own. To that end, we seek to uphold the Constitution, and its principles of limited government, federalism, the separation of powers, and individual liberties.
The Bradley brothers owed much of their success to a free enterprise system, and Bradley works to ensure that this opportunity is available to future generations. We are committed to free markets that allow for private enterprise, entrepreneurship, and free voluntary exchange.
America thrives on the exceptional strength and vitality of its families, schools, churches, neighborhoods, voluntary associations, and arts and cultural institutions, which cultivate personal character, strengthen community bonds, and encourage genuine citizenship. We support these fundamental institutions of civil society in cultivating individuals capable of self-governance.
Our liberties are secure and will endure only insofar as Americans value and uphold the principles and institutions of American exceptionalism. Bradley supports educational efforts that help cultivate informed and capable citizens.
