Thank you for your support of the Statesmen Academy

July 1

To each of you who participated in the $247,000 Challenge Grant to expand the Statesmen Academy, please accept our heartfelt thanks! The Statesmen Academy trains and equips men and women in Christ-centered public service, and you’ve helped advance that mission.

Your faithful giving has enabled Family Policy Foundation to grow the Statesmen Academy in significant ways this year and allowed us to make plans for even more impact in the years to come. Already, one prime example is in the launch of our new Statesmen Academy webpage this week!

The new webpage provides prospective statesmen and stateswomen, supporters and friends of FPF with much more information about what the Academy is, how it functions, and the effect it has on graduates and public policy across the nation. The page includes our new Statesmen Academy promotional video, detailed information about our recruitment and application processes, specific examples of alumni impact, and multiple ways to contribute financially and prayerfully to the Academy.

I hope you will consider sponsoring a statesman, becoming a prayer partner, and sharing with others about the growing impact of the Statesmen Academy.

Your participation in our Challenge Grant has also allowed us to increase the number of alumni attending our first Statesmen Academy alumni reunion. We are just days away (19, to be exact) from Called Together – a reunion event that will enable us to re-engage with more than one-third of Statesmen Academy graduates and provide them advanced training, spiritual inspiration and political wisdom for the future. And due to increasing demand and your faithful giving, we are planning for next year’s training to be the largest Statesmen Academy ever. (More information on that event is coming soon!)

In short, we are believing God for great things in the coming year. As we develop goals and pursue greater impact, we do so in humble dependence on the Lord’s blessing and the continued support of friends like you.

We could not do what we do – training and equipping statesmen for effective, Christ-centered public service – without your financial and prayerful partnership. Thank you for standing with us!

Director, Statesmen Academy
