We are a private foundation located in Colorado Springs. Family members comprise the Board of Directors. We are proactive in our grant-making and will consider letters of inquiry but we do not consider unsolicited grant requests.
We conduct an eleven question survey annually for El Paso County, Colorado and a national survey every other year, and use the results to guide our efforts and grant-making. See the 11 Questions tab for details on this.
Our primary interest is to be persuasive in restoring the "Opportunity Society" by (a) promoting a gradual and significant reduction in the size and scope of both Federal and State governments (see Downsizing tab), (b) working as part of the Bastiat Society to influence business owners to be "Principled Wealth Creators " (Bastiat Society tab), and (c) encouraging business and the general electorate to endorse both our Profit Sharing and Vouchers for Delivery of Social Services and Free Enterprise and True Responsible Capitalism statements (see Prof Sh-Vouchers and Resp Capitalism tabs). For an understanding of the free market economic system see the I,Pencil tab.
We helped found the Center for the Study of Government and the Individual ("CSGI") at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs and continue to provide general operating support and special support for their Program for Preserving a Free and Prosperous Society. See www.uccs.edu/csgi and http://springslectures.info/about-fps/ for additional information.
Major support also goes to Economic Literacy Colorado (formerly Colorado Council for Economic Education) (www.ccee.net), Leadership Program of the Rockies (www.leadershipprogram.org), and Limited Government Forum (www.limitedgovforum.org).
