About Us

The Health Care Compact is a project of Competitive Governance Action, a 501(C)(4) organization committed to educating and advocating for the concept that problems should be solved by the smallest, least centralized, most local authority that may effectively address the matter. Central to the concept is the devolution of political power from the federal government to state and local governments, to individuals and to non-government community and religious institutions.The Health Care Compact was developed to offer Americans more influence over decisions that govern health care.

Contributions to Competitive Governance Action are not deductible as charitable contributions.

Like many non-profit organizations, Competitive Governance Action respects the wishes of its donors to keep their identities confidential. Our policy is in full compliance with the “Donor’s Bill of Rights” developed by the National Society of Fund Raising Executives, the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel, the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Among its tenets is the promise that donations will be "handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law."

COMPETITIVE GOVERNANCE ACTION DOES NOT SOLICIT OR ACCEPT DONATIONS FROM ANY POLITICAL PARTY, PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY OR HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANY.
