America’s Leading Conservative Organization Saw Massive Growth During Pandemic

Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 3.9 | Relevance 4.7

Turning Point USA, the nation’s leading advocate for conservative values in high schools and colleges, took a chance on expanding during two years of Covid-19 shutdowns, and it paid off big time as donations, revenues, and influence jumped, according to financial documents. While many nonprofit advocacy groups shut down during Covid, Founder Charlie Kirk said he traveled 305 days to promote conservatism, free markets, and fiscal responsibility to young groups, helped to expand the number of chapters in schools to 3,000, started a network of private “pro-American” schools, built a donor base of 105,000, and created Turning Point Faith to include church leaders and groups.
