The Frederick Douglass Foundation of Michigan is a public policy and educational organization, which brings the sanctity of free market and limited government ideas to bear on the hardest problems facing our nation. We are a collection of pro-active individuals committed to developing innovative and new approaches to today’s problems with the assistance of elected officials, scholars from universities and colleges, and community activists.

It is our desire to create an environment where we ignite excitement for the future and produce a road map for success that benefits all Americans. Your participation to that end is crucial. Thank you for your consideration to our growing movement.


The Frederick Douglass Foundation in Michigan exists to educate, enhance and empower those who support us and the communities in which we serve.


Members of The Frederick Douglass Foundation believe:

  • We live in a land of liberty where natural rights of individuals precede and supersede the power of the state.
  • We are a constitutional republic in which government power is limited and employed for the purpose of providing legitimate public goods rather than for the benefit of insiders and narrow interest groups.
  • We are a free market in which persons, individually or collectively, have the natural right to sell goods and services to willing buyers, and in which the individual pursuit of economic opportunity benefits all.
  • We are a free society where citizens solve social problems not only through government but also by working together in families, neighborhoods, churches, charities, and other private, voluntary organizations.
