Why FGA?

Foundation for Government Accountability promotes better lives for individuals and families by equipping policymakers with principled strategies to reform failed health and welfare programs nationwide.Foundation-for-Government-Accountability-Logo

FGA is a dynamic and fast-growing free-market think tank headquartered in sunny Naples, Florida, and is known for its world-class team of health care and welfare experts and their innovative policy solutions.

The organization’s founder and CEO is Tarren Bragdon. Tarren is a renowned expert on health care and welfare policy, and under his leadership, the FGA team pursues a vision for disrupting the cycle of government dependency that takes away hope from generations of Americans.

If you become a part of FGA, you will be joining a flexible, lean, fast-paced organization that expects much from you, but will ensure you are working in your areas of greatest strength, and have the freedom to iterate new approaches to achieving the organization’s goals.

While many policy organizations focus on a myriad of issues, FGA’s narrow focus on two issues and its absolute dedication to in-depth planning and message development will create incredible clarity for you. This laser focus and intense preparation greatly increases the organization’s ability to accomplish big goals. And the results are good. FGA has grown at a breakneck pace since its launch three years ago, and is now among the largest free market state-focused think tanks. The Left fears it, and rightly so.
