Energize The Next Generation To Advance The Christian Worldview - $4.4 million

We have an aggressive plan to engage high school and college students, equip young leaders, and find new ways to communicate truth to the internet generation" we must flood the public debate with fresh, new pro-family activists. FRC must expand our development of materials and video curriculum to equip pastors and laypeople to effectively engage the culture" To expand our reach, we must expand our team that works directly with pastors and their congregations.

"Flooding the public debate" by going into schools has been a favorite accusation of the FRC towards the LGBT community. The hypocrisy is certainly not lost. 


Equip The Church To Transform America - $6.8 million

Our ministry to pastors now includes a network of 16,474 serving an estimated 4.1 million people.Within that, we have more than 700 church-based Culture Impact Teams. 

"An additional but critical area of investment will be recruiting Christian leaders to run for public office and become modern day Daniels and Esthers."

Expand FRC's Supporter Base And Facilities - $10.7 million. 

FRC cannot match the opposition dollar for dollar, but we must strategically apply increasing pressure that the right points tip the scales in the direction of truth. 

This is where they ask for $ to "update our headquarters." They also request $1.3 for a Washington, DC townhouse to act as a hub for their lobbying efforts. 


We have seen the results of Christofascism without them being labeled as such: hate speech from the pulpits, anti-environment editorials, climate change denials, even the GOP's "war on women." Most recently, we have seen it in the response to the Batman Shooting tragedy. One tweet by Wall Street columnist James Taranto:

The FRC hopes that through its efforts, more misogynistic, homophobic, and self-righteous tweets, posts, videos, screeds, books, and sermons will advance "Faith, Family and Freedom."

*To the point that those reputable researchers have forced FRC to remove their names from the publications or face lawsuits.
