Family Research Council

Your Gift's Impact

The support of friends like you enables Family Research Council to provide key research to Congress, the White House, and the general public, shaping the debate on issues pertaining to faith, family, and freedom.

Pro-family bills have been drafted based on information, language, and research FRC provided, thanks to generosity like yours. Judicial nominees have been confirmed or rejected as a result of FRC's national influence and the millions of Americans for whom it speaks. Lives have been protected and saved thanks to commitment like yours to preserving faith, family and freedom through FRC.

Family Research Council would not be able to influence public debate on the issues you care about without the faithful financial and prayerful support of friends like you. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, FRC relies fully on partners like you to fund its work.

Thank you for joining with FRC as we champion faith, family, and freedom in this great nation.
