What is the Statesmen Academy?

For years, the Statesmen Academy has been training, equipping and serving state legislators. These graduates have used the training, resources and support to impact policies affecting families, life and religious freedom in their states.

Through your support—DOUBLED when you give by May 31 through the Challenge Grant—statesmen will learn how to stand firm in their unwavering principles in the face of enormous pressure, as well as join thriving communities for mutual support and accountability.

Your support is crucial!

The Statesmen Academy is held annually, and the number of men and women who want to participate continues to grow. That’s why we’re planning to expand the 2023 class to meet the great need.

Your generous financial support will train state legislators to transform our government from the INSIDE!

Transforming our government from the inside

How does the Statesmen Academy affect you?

State legislators introduce bills, resolutions and amendments that affect you, your family, your religious liberty and your future opportunity.

The Statesmen Academy equips these men and women—who will determine the future of our states and nation for decades, if not generations—to stand up for your family and your values.

YOU and the Statesmen Academy GET RESULTS

Since 2016, the Statesmen Academy has already trained and equipped 150 leaders from 35 states.

Most importantly, these leaders are getting things done:

They are getting elected.

In 2022, 88 of them were on the ballot and 83 won!

They are moving up.

Already, 37 have been elected to a leadership position or to a new or higher office - including two U.S. congressmen.

They are leading on the issues.

From the sanctity of life to girls' sports to safeguarding our religious freedom and more, these men and women are taking the lead, carrying legislation and winning victories that make a real difference in the lives of Americans.

A word from Statesmen Academy alum

"[As a conservative], when you go into a Capitol building, you have every force against you.

Every lobbyist arguing for more woke capitalism, or a bigger piece of the government pie.

Yet, when you have something like The Statesmen Academy — that actually grounds you and prepares you — you can walk in there and do what's right, for your constituents and for what God needs you to do."
