Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

A corporate faith-based initiative?

Acton’s Jordan Ballor reminds us that the arguments for encouraging faith-based social services apply regardless of who’s funding them. Whatever political or constitutional objections there are to government funding, they shouldn’t apply to corporate giving, yet many corporations also have policies that forbid contributions to fbos.

Find out if your employer has such restrictive policies, and encourage it to focus on the good that these groups do. One of the benefits of the faith-based initiative is that it has encouraged greater organization and accounting sophistication in fbos, which makes it easier for contributors to direct their money to the elements of the program not directly connected with proselytizing (if that’s the issue).
