(a) Healthcare for All, an effort to establish a system of socialized medicine for all residents of the United States
(b) Revitalizing Education: This campaign supports increased government funding for: universal pre-school care; health and nutritional programs for young children; Head Start programs; federal school construction and maintenance; hiring more teachers and paying them higher salaries; universal access to after-school programs; and grants and loans for college students.
(c) Accountable Congress: This initiative consists of "unapologetic and sustained campaigns to expose [Republicans'] corruption and make them accountable to their constituents."
(e) Straight Talk: IAF and CAF produce online and print media “designed to serve up ammunition to progressives who have the opportunity to challenge the grip that the right has had on our imaginations and our policies over the past quarter century.”
In 2005, IAF helped to launch Americans United to Protect Social Security (AUPSS), an initiative of labor, business, and social justice groups working to derail privatization efforts. In the aftermath of President Bush’s 2005 State of the Union address (where he discussed his privatization proposal), AUPSS staged 249 events in 45 states characterizing the President’s plan as dangerous to the financial well-being of senior citizens. Assisting IAF in founding AUPSS were the AFL-CIO, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Moveon.org, and USAction.
Unlike its sister organization (CAF), the Institute for America's Future is technically a “non-political” think tank, and thus the contributions it receives are tax-deductible for its private donors. Among the foundations that support IAF are the Arca Foundation and the Streisand Foundation.
