The Free Enterprise Fund is a Section 501(c)(4) organization based in Washington, DC. The Free Enterprise Fund was founded in January 2005 by Stephen Moore and "some prominent" Club for Growth "members including Arthur B. Laffer, a board member, along with Mallory Factor, a businessman," following a rift in Club for Growth at which time Moore was "privately ousted" as Club for Growth president in December 2004, David E. Kirkpatrick reported in the July 8, 2005, New York Times.

The Fund describes itself as "the preeminent lobbying force in Washington for the passage of legislation that will promote economic growth, lower taxes, and limited government."

"The Fund advances these economic legislative goals through a variety of means: running TV and radio issue advertising campaigns, providing timely and tactical policy guidance to members of Congress, and publishing white papers with strategic game plans on vital economic and fiscal issues," it states on it website.
