Founded in 1991, The Faith & Politics Institute has served hundreds of members of Congress and congressional staff by offering experiential pilgrimages, reflection groups, retreats and public forums. In a world that is increasingly interconnected, we are dedicated to doing this work with the Congress because of their ties to a broad constituency and their leadership in local, national and global policy. Our belief is that our commitment to a relatively small but influential group of people will ultimately reach many. Support our mission to advance productive discourse and constructive collaboration.

Why do we invite you to give?
The Institute helps to bridge the divides that inevitably arise in a thriving democracy. We bring Members of Congress together to develop friendships and working relationships, both publicly and off-the-record.
We honor political courage and conscience, those who step out in faith across the aisle. Most Members did not seek election to deepen divides, but to find solutions. However, the system constantly seeks to heighten contrasts that can destroy the best intentions. In this environment, we try and help Members “hold on to a piece of their soul.”
How do we make an impact?
The Institute hosts the Capitol Hill community in a variety of settings: small reflection groups, Members’ bipartisan dinners, Chiefs of Staff dialogues, retreats, public forums, pilgrimages and individual ministry. We also honor companies, lobbyists, unions and others who seek a philanthropic and bipartisan approach. We particularly honor those whose faith has led them to constructive efforts.What difference can you make?
