The State Government Leadership Foundation (SGLF) spotlights hotbed issues and conservative policies that state government officials wrestle with most. For too long, out-of-touch leaders in the states have colluded with special interests to raise taxes, swell state budgets, and increase the size of government. The SGLF is taking the lead on educating elected and appointed state government officials, providing support to local officeholders, and highlighting meaningful, conservative solutions. The SGLF is a 501 (c)(4) social welfare organization and is a strategic partner of the the Republican State Leadership Committee, one of the largest conservative caucuses in the country.
Our Beliefs and Our Mission
The SGLF firmly believes that good policy will ultimately be realized at the state level. As per usual -- there is grid-lock in Washington, and the Federal government is out of control and accomplishing little to nothing. Contrast this with the states, who are getting things done -- some better than others. America is at its most prosperous and productive when there is limited government, less spending, less taxes, less dictation from Washington, and less encroachment into the states.
The SGLF intends to help place public policy back into the hands of our states. That is where we will find leadership and good governance.
The SGLF is dedicated to educating policymakers and the public about the benefits of smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budgets, and efficiency in governing.
How We're Engaged
The SGLF devotes resources in the form of research and training, public communications, conferences, and other means of dialogue among conservative state leaders. Given the breadth and depth of policy issues state governments face, the need for the SGLF to take the lead on putting these issues in the spotlight has never been greater.
Your contribution to SGLF will help us get the word out to citizens in every state preparing and equipping them to step up and speak out on crucial issues. The SGLF exists through the generosity of its private sector donors. Individuals, organizations and companies sharing state level public policy concerns find the SGLF to be an effective organization to foster a dialogue on these issues.
There is no limit on the type or size of contributions and the Internal Revenue Service does not require public disclosure of donors. Contributions to the SGLF are not deductible as charitable donations. The SGLF's tax identification number is 20-0505849.
