In today’s current political climate there is a revival of sorts going on in the Conservative movement. It reminds me of the Second Great Awakening, where churches popped up on every corner clamoring for members to be baptized in a particular congregation. So when a new friend asked me about my thoughts on where to participate and donate to help the conservative vision it seemed like posting here was a good place to start.
Often I give to the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Candidates directly: https://www.senateconservatives.com/races I know SCF vets those they endorse. If a candidate lies to them and votes contrary to conservative principles, they revoke support for that candidate. That is why I check to see who’s who and to support those candidates in particular. Jim DeMint started SCF. It is a consistently conservative organization.
I have donated to David Horowitz’s Freedom Center because there are many great thinkers and writers on FrontPageMag.com, and David has so many irons in the fire to assault the lies of the left. My last big donation was for the archival quality volumes of The Black Book of the American Left. I have been a big fan of his since the 1990’s.
Currently I am donating to Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) because it seems like Jim DeMint understands what needs to be done. I do so waiting to see what good he is bringing about. He is working to unite an army of activists in supporting honorable men and women. As CPI bears good fruit, I will be increasing that donation.
As a Heritage Action Sentinel, my donations there began slowly and to be honest, my donation is embarrassingly minimal.
By subscribing to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and Mark Levin’s CRTV, I feel like my time and money is well spent being well educated about the things that matter most. I really believe in Glenn’s vision and am looking forward to increasing donations to his company, MercuryOne.org.
A few years ago I decided to check myself from getting sucked into funding every good cause. There are many wonderful causes, groups, and sincere people doing marvelous things. It was overwhelming. Therefore, I prayerfully made a conscious decision to reduce and simplify my life, and to know where to best donate. In order to focus on what matters most to me, I choose to give more money to a few organizations.
Hope these thoughts are helpful.
