Welcome to the website of CFA Foundation (CFAF), formerly Colorado Family Institute. Our site is designed to give you relevant information about important issues we are working on, provide you with tools you will need to advocate for the issues you believe in, and give you an opportunity to have your voice heard. CFAF believes in the blessings of traditional marriage. We value the sacredness of human life and the dignity of every human person. We cherish our religious freedom to worship the God of the Bible and promote His Word. We invite you to join us as we work to strengthens and support Colorado families.
The family is the fundamental building block of all human civilizations. It is the original form of government from which all others come about either by choice or by force. Marriage holds all of society together through the socialization of men, the protection of women and the nurturing and education of children. The health of our culture, its citizens and their children are intimately linked to the wellbeing of marriage.
We hold to the truth that life begins at conception and should end only at natural death. The protection of life is one of the primary purposes of free government. It is our belief that the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision runs counter to the principles of liberty for all individuals. Protection for individuals at the end of life is equally important. Therefore we oppose euthanasia and other methods of ending life before it would otherwise naturally end.
Free exercise of religion is the first and most fundamental right of Americans protected in the Bill of Rights. It is our belief that religious liberty and expression should be unhindered by government regulation or judicial dictate. Religious expression should be protected from governmental and judicial control in all society including in the workplace, government, public schools and all other public and private institutions.
The collision between faith and culture is never more apparent than when lawmakers and courts decide how the moral issues of our day will be addressed in our laws and court decisions. Americans often look to the courts as a tool for solving the controversial issues of the day; but is this the proper role of the courts? We believe the role given to judges is to interpret law, not to make it.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of children. Many connected with the government education system believe that parental roles are secondary in the education of children. We disagree, and instead encourage the reform of the education system through school choice and greater parental involvement.
CFA Foundation (CFAF), formerly named Colorado Family Foundation, is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 research and educational organization committed to strengthening the family. CFAF’s mission is to restore and defend traditional moral principles by educating and equipping churches and citizens on important issues that affect marriage, life and the family, in an effort to re-shape public opinion on these issues. By informing and motivating the citizens, we will seize the opportunity, to make a positive change in the state of Colorado.
CFAF is one of 38 other state based family policy councils around the country which is associated with CitizenLink, a Focus on the Family Affiliate.
CFAF is funded through yearly, monthly and issue related tax-deductible donations from individuals, families and corporations.
