A Decade of Growth and Impact
We have grown exponentially since our founding in 2011.
That’s because we experiment, learn from our mistakes, and adapt to the ever-changing political landscape. For example, we used to provide just a few solutions to policymakers based on our top priorities. Now, we give lawmakers a menu featuring dozens of reforms and partner with them to create new ideas and comprehensive reform agendas.
In 2021, we achieved more than 270 state-based wins. In total, we have more than 690 state-based wins and 25 major federal victories that are improving millions of lives across the country.
You can see the growth for yourself.

To accomplish these incredible results, FGA has more than 40 full-time employees and a network of more than 400 policymakers in the states and Washington, D.C.
Of course, the true heroes of our story are the generous, private investors who make these results possible. And, thanks to more than 40 major donor partners who give between $20,000 and $3 million, we only spend three percent on fundraising, maximizing the return on your investment.
Many things have changed in the past decade, but one thing is consistent: FGA advances great policies that improve lives.
At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.
By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
