Vision & Culture


“We won’t let partisanship prevent good policy that matters for peoples’ lives.”

Emily Seidel
Chief Executive Officer for Americans for Prosperity

Our Vision

Since our founding in 2004, Americans for Prosperity has been driven by a core belief: every person has unique gifts that enable them to realize their American Dream.

Our vision is to remove the barriers preventing people from using those gifts and achieving that dream. That’s why Americans for Prosperity built a grassroots movement across the nation. Our infrastructure now elevates the voices of millions of people to advocate the principles and policies of a free and open society.

From Miami, Florida, to Anchorage, Alaska and from Phoenix, Arizona, to Columbus, Ohio millions of our fellow Americans volunteer their time and passion to join with us to bring change, hope, and a better way forward.

So join us and the millions of voices across the country, united by the principles articulated in the Declaration of Independence, who are committed to empowering every American to realize their American Dream and move our country forward together.

Learn about the issue areas in which Americans for Prosperity engages. These are the areas we believe most affect a person’s ability to discover and develop their unique gifts, and we’re committed to breaking down the barriers that prevent people from contributing and succeeding to the best of their ability.

An Empowering Culture

Our management philosophy seeks to empower employees to think and act like entrepreneurs working together toward a shared vision. Market-Based Management® (MBM®) is the management philosophy and framework our grassroots community and all employees apply to succeed by helping others improve their lives. It is the approach we use to innovate, improve, and transform ourselves and our work so we realize our potential as employees and help achieve a society in which all people can realize their unique potential. Core to this management philosophy is our MBM Framework and Guiding Principles, which articulate who we are as an organization and guide everything we do. If you’re someone who embraces and drives change, if you seek knowledge from any and all sources to help you learn and improve your thinking, if you enjoy collaborating with people of diverse perspectives, if you’re excited to take initiative and solve problems, and if you’re committed to the approach of doing well by doing good, then you can thrive in the MBM culture here at Americans for Prosperity.

We Celebrate Diversity

There are no ordinary people. Every person has something unique to offer the world.

We believe every person is capable of extraordinary things. The Americans for Prosperity team values the unique skills and attributes of each employee because we recognize that real progress only comes with humility and an openness to new ideas. History shows that progress in society rarely springs from a single mind alone. Instead, progress is best achieved when individuals with diverse perspectives stand together to work toward a common purpose.

That’s why in our work, we intentionally bring unique perspectives together around a shared vision of helping every person rise.

We recognize that personal experience informs our perspective and, ultimately, our point of view. Those experiences are influenced by our color, race, religion, religious creed, sex, gender or gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, ancestry, age, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy (including medical needs which may arise from pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), military and veteran status, genetic information, marital or familial status, political affiliation, and so much more. Our community provides both the room to be yourself and the support to grow and make a positive difference with your career. This approach offers our team a fulfilling workplace and a diverse professional peer group dedicated to making our country a better place.

We don’t go through the motions of inclusion. We live it, every day. Each employee is accountable for embodying and fostering the values of inclusion, dignity, respect, and humility. At Stand Together everyone is a diversity officer. We are committed to listening and learning how to ensure our workplace and communities are places for open and respectful discussions that can advance meaningful change. Our values are not just words on paper, they are what we live by and hold each other accountable to, every day.

Because every individual has extraordinary gifts, we believe that together we can transform how we tackle our nation’s greatest challenges to help every person rise.
