IMPACT_CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER_Square-1The Bradley Impact Fund offers a unique suite of philanthropic mutual funds inspired by the grantmaking of The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. These funds are aligned with the guiding principles shared by The Bradley Foundation and the Bradley Impact Fund donor community.

The Constitutional Order Fund supports organizations dedicated to advancing fidelity to the Constitution, with its principles of limited government, federalism, separation of powers, and individual liberties.

We believe the political system envisioned by America’s founders must be preserved “to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” and to give American citizens room to solve problems effectively on their own. The Bradley Impact Fund stands firmly opposed to forces that would wrest control from individual citizens and vest authority in big government, especially at the national level.

We seek to promote understanding of America’s democratic system and republican institutions, to support federalism, and to defend the rights of all individuals to political engagement in accordance with the rule of law. We aim to protect the nation’s legal system from efforts to circumvent the Constitutional order, to protect the electoral process, and to protect the basic liberties outlined in the Bill of Rights, including the freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
