Senator Dan Coats and his wife Marsha established the Foundation for American Renewal in 1999 to champion effective principles of compassion.  The Foundation pursues its mission through an action agenda combining on-the-ground projects with leading edge research and strategic grants. 

As a United States Senator in the 1990s, Dan Coats led the Project for American Renewal which featured a legislative package aimed at supporting grassroots charities through tax credits and innovative policy solutions. This work is considered by many to be the forerunner to President Bush’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives and it continues to have influence in philanthropy policy (tax credits) and practice. His vision for American renewal through faith and community solutions is articulated in his book Mending Fences, and in the numerous speeches and essays contained on this website.
