Pillar Society


To support WPC’s vital work and new endeavors, to ensure our impact continues to grow, and to better steward our top donors, WPC launched the Pillar Society. The Pillar Society distinguishes donors who make a substantial pledge which is paid over three years (pledges start at $5,000 per year).

By joining our Pillar Society, you are putting your dollars toward a time-tested, professional organization that will fight for your principles long into the future. Be assured that we are working hard to give our policymakers, and voters, the information they need to make fiscally responsible choices.

Along with the distinction of being a WPC Pillar Society member, benefits include premier tables at our conferences and Annual Dinner (reserved before the event sells-out!), varying recognition throughout the year and invitations to private events with key public officials, business leaders and thought leaders.

We sincerely thank our current Pillar Society members, listed below, and invite you to join with us!
