Initiatives

Uniquely positioned at the center of a national, state, and local coalition, The Family Foundation serves as a catalyst for change through work in three key areas:

  • Preparing Leaders
  • Promoting Values
  • Providing Accountability

Our values-based policy initiatives are guided by the five principles listed to the right. Each principle includes several policy proposals.

The Family Foundation has enjoyed many significant legislative victories including abortion center health regulations (2011), prohibiting taxpayer funding of elective abortions (2010), Student Religious Liberty Act (2008), Internet filters on public library computers (2007), a constitutional amendment defining marriage (2006), parental consent for abortion (2003), required posting of national motto “In God We Trust” in public schools (2002), partial birth abortion ban (1998/2003), parental notification for abortion (1997) and outlawing riverboat gambling (1996).
