The Free Enterprise Alliance was founded by the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) to advocate for the voice of small business as well as open and fair competition in the construction industry. Since its inception, it has fought for these goals through research, education, outreach, as well as TV, radio and digital campaigns across the country.
At the heart of the Free Enterprise Alliance’s mission is the belief that while we need government for common sense regulations, the scales have tipped too far in favor of government intrusion and its advocates. The Free Enterprise Alliance believes small business and entrepreneurs—not union bosses and federal bureaucrats—grow jobs and our economy.
The Free Enterprise Alliance is not a 527, 501(c)(4) or other tax exempt political entity—it is simply a checking account at ABC National, a 501(c)(6), and therefore NOT required to disclose its donors with the Federal Election Commission.
