Our Mission

The United States deserves to be led by individuals who not only understand our military but by those who have sworn an oath to be a part it. We at the Guardian Fund believe that veterans of the U.S. military embody a kind of dedication to this country that is second to none and possess an unmatched loyalty to preserving and protecting the United States and its conservative American values.

The Challenge

Forty years ago, 70% of lawmakers in the House of Representatives and 78% of those in the Senate had served in the armed forces. The number of veterans serving on Capitol Hill has been imperceptibly declining since the early 1970s, largely a result of the World War II generation steadily leaving public office.

The United States deserves to be led by individuals who not only understand our military but by those who have sworn an oath to be a part it. We at the Guardian Fund believe that veterans of the U.S. military embody a kind of dedication to this country that is second to none and possess an unmatched loyalty to preserving and protecting the United States and its conservative American values.

Our Founder — Allen West (Lt. Col, Ret.)

The Guardian Fund is coming up on its ten-year anniversary. We started this organization recognizing a real need to support military and minority conservatives in Congressional elections. My intent was to provide resources to those who did not come from a background of self-funding, but their heart burned to serve our Nation in elected office. We had no idea back in 2011 that what we began would grow into a proven organization. Over these years, we have supported those who have become members of the US House of Representatives and Senate. We have become a standard bearer for candidates looking to serve our country again.

The Guardian Fund just experienced its best election cycle in our decade-long existence, and we are looking forward to the next ten years.

America needs a conservative movement that reflects the fabric of America. The Guardian Fund is not focused on identity politics, but rather dedicated and principled men and women who will represent the best of American constitutional conservative values, governing philosophy, and fundamentals. We seek out those who have served in uniform and seek to continue their service. We want those who will evidence courage, boldness, and impeccable character. We want those who will be "Guardians of the Republic". So, please, support this phenomenal effort that has been battle tested and yielded impressive results.

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome and congratulate Lieutenant General Jack Bergman (US Marine Corps, Retired) as the new Chairman of the Guardian Fund. I have no doubt that LTG (Rep) Bergman will take the Guardian Fund to new heights. LTG Bergman will continue the standard of excellence that we have come to know of the Guardian Fund, and its recruited candidates.

God bless America, and I thank Him for the inspiration behind the Guardian Fund.

Guardian Fund is a political action committee established in 2012 by Lt. Col. Allen West and has assisted in the elections of 160 veteran and minority candidates nationwide since its inception. It's one of the largest and most active veteran-focused PACs in the country.

A Message from Our Chairman: Lt. Gen USMC, Ret. Representative Jack Bergman, (R-MI-01)

Thank you for continuing to support the mission of the Guardian Fund. It is our shared goal to recruit and support more Veterans and minorities across the country who will stand with conviction and principle. Today, less than 20 percent of Congress has served in our Nation's Armed Forces. Having served in the Marine Corps for 40 years, I've seen first-hand the leadership our men and women in uniform bring to the table. Our Veterans know what it takes to win and what it will take to fight for the very heart and soul of our Nation. I'm proud of the work we are doing together, and I hope you will join us in the fight!
