What We Do
The American Leadership & Policy Foundation (ALPF) was founded in 2014 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, non-partisan, public policy think tank. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, ALPF is a citizen directed research and policy foundation.
ALPF is funded exclusively by people like you and does not accept corporate or special interest funding and grants. We work for the people of the United States and are wholly committed to developing the kind of policy solutions and leadership that benefit our citizens first.
The perspective and research generated by ALPF originates with civically concerned thought leaders, experts, and professionals who generate world-class policy analysis from the frontline of their respective fields.
ALPF believes providing the right information, in the right way, at the right time is critical to helping citizens and local, state, and federal governments have access to the information needed to make commonsense reforms that both enhance our Republic and our society.
In a climate where policymakers are lobbied daily by entities with agendas often contrary to the public interest, ALPF is working to establish itself as a trusted resource and counter balance.
At ALPF, some of our nation’s most talented scholars and innovators are working to find practical, commonsense solutions to our toughest challenges. To meet these challenges, ALPF has embarked on an ambitious vision and mission.
