Free to Give

All Americans—no matter their politics, race, religion or class—should have the freedom to give to the causes and communities they care about most. That’s exactly why we’re lifting up the voices of everyday Americans who serve alongside amazing charities.

Values-Based Giving

You can join a growing movement of philanthropists who place the values of liberty, opportunity and personal responsibility at the center of their charitable giving. We call this Values-Based Giving, and we’re here to help.

True Diversity

True Diversity is an equality-based, holistic framework for embracing diversity. It values every person as a unique individual and empowers charitable organizations with the freedom and flexibility to advance their missions and help those in need.
