In the first two years of operation, CWF raised over $7 million to become the 5th largest PAC in the country for the 1998 election cycle and the leading pro-family, pro-life political action committee in America.
CWF has used its resources to raise public awareness of partial-birth abortion through extensive media campaigns and distributed two million pieces of literature through our voter education program.
In addition to providing direct financial support to conservative candidates, CWF also provides crucial support to pro-family ballot initiatives, including the successful Defense of Marriage initiatives in Alaska, California, Nebraska, Nevada, and Hawaii, as well as, a parental notification initiative in Colorado.
Federal laws governing non-profit organizations formed for the purpose of educating the public on certain issues are very strict and such organizations are not permitted to endorse or oppose candidates for public office. However, a political action committee, like CWF, which is registered with the Federal Election Commission, exists solely to raise funds to support or oppose candidates based upon their political views.
In today's political climate, it is often difficult to distinguish the crucial differences between candidates. CWF has a very thorough screening process for all endorsed candidates which includes: a detailed questionnaire with dozens of questions on key issues; interviews with the candidates; and extensive monitoring and research of individual races.
Supporting CWF takes the guesswork out of identifying the true conservatives from the pretenders. Individuals supporting CWF can be assured that their funds are wisely used and well spent. Because of our extensive process of evaluating candidates, many CWF donors support our political action committee in lieu of contributing to the many individual candidates who seek their help. They in turn refer individual candidates to CWF for screening, thus ensuring that their political contributions go to candidates who truly represent their values.
