America’s Future (AF; formerly America’s Future Foundation) is a right-of-center membership and professional development organization that operates nationally in the United States. The right-of-center recruitment agency Talent Market operates under AF’s tax-exempt status.
Founding and History
America’s Future was founded in 1995 as a hub focused in Washington, D.C., for free-market friendly leaders. In 2011 the organization began expanding with chapters around the country. In 2020 it absorbed the free-market talent placement agency Talent Market and at the end of 2020 announced that it was changing its name from America’s Future Foundation to America’s Future. 
At the end of fiscal year 2019 America’s Future had $2,365,621 in revenue, of which $2,289,664 was derived from contributions and grants. AF had $1,113,343 in expenses, of which $458,076 was allocated towards salaries and benefits and $1,113,343 was allocated towards other expenses, the largest being $226,238 for travel and $108,833 for conferences, conventions, and meetings. The organization ended the fiscal year with $2,019,005 in assets.  
Talent Market was founded in 2000 as part of Donors Trust, a right-of-center donor-advised fund, in order to aid right-of-center organizations with their talent and hiring searches. In 2009 it began operating as an independent non-profit, and at the end of 2020 it began to operate under the tax-exempt umbrella of America’s Future.   Talent Market does not charge for its consulting and recruiting services for institutions that work to advance limited government, free markets, and the rule of law. It does not work with organizations that are political in nature, promote special interests, work on social issues, or are focused on working outside the US.
