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.
What is Values-Based Giving?
When philanthropy works well, donors and nonprofits work collaboratively to achieve the impossible. Joint charitable efforts continue to form bedrocks of support in communities across the country. And these voluntary efforts often succeed where coercive government-led efforts have failed.
That’s because of the values that drive them: Liberty, Opportunity and Personal Responsibility. Our community of donors and nonprofits believes that charity works best when efforts are informed by a core set of values that empower individuals and their communities. Explore our values below and the stories of how they are improving lives.
We believe everyone deserves dignity and respect, which is why we value each individual as a unique person with unique needs. Constitutional rights must be respected, and the power of the private sector should be leveraged to advance innovative solutions to complex problems.
