Lift Others, Better Ourselves
We are conservative advocates for those who are poor and disadvantaged.
We care deeply about lifting every person in need. We are also concerned about the political and social divides that grip our communities and nation.
By joining with all people of good will to lift our neighbors in need, not only will we help those who are poor and disadvantaged rise above poverty, but we will also transcend the harmful divides that exist today.
Working together, regardless of political affiliation, to help the most vulnerable members of society will unite, strengthen, and uplift everyone.
We invite you to join us.
Lift every person in need to prosperity and self-reliance through sound public policy that affirms each person’s human dignity and allows for every opportunity to flourish.
Transcend Together (formerly known as Next Generation Freedom Fund) is a nonpartisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating decision makers and influencing public discourse in a way that enables every person in need to rise above poverty and become prosperous and self-reliant.
