Focus on Policy, Not Politics

August 24, 2020

In this election year, it’s easy to become distracted by all of the noise. We must not lose sight of the fact that while elections have consequences and matter greatly, political victories without a clear policy agenda severely limit the ability to govern effectively. The Founding Fathers put power in the hands of the people. As informed citizens, it is our job to support policies and ideas we believe align with the intent of our founding principles. By focusing on policy, we achieve a double win: creation of a clear plan for elected officials who believe in a strong, limited government and an alternative strategy for those not aligned with us to find new and better ways to help people help themselves.

Much like with public policy, a well-considered donor intent can help you maintain focus and provide peace of mind knowing you are investing for optimal impact in restoring, strengthening, and protecting American values and ideals. With membership in the Bradley Impact Fund, you’re closer to the nation’s sharpest thinking and well-informed peers interested in engaging with you. Impact Fund resources can help you develop your philanthropy in a broader context, so you can confidently create your own giving strategy in the areas of Constitutional order, free markets, civil society, and informed citizens that matter the most to you.

These are uncertain times. If you'd like to discuss your donor intent, please get in touch. We welcome the opportunity to help protect the integrity of your philanthropy.
