Leading a generational call to stewardship.
Long before a pandemic led to $6 trillion in new debt, borrowing against future generations was the norm in Washington. For two decades, both political parties have embraced historic levels of deficit spending, threatening the stability of America's social safety net as well as the nation's long-term economic and national security. The Millennial Debt Foundation is convening millennial business and political leaders, through the Millennial Debt Commission and regional events across the country, to work towards a generational framework for stewardship and sustainability.

The Millennial Debt Foundation was launched in mid-2019 by Tennessean Weston Wamp and other millennial entrepreneurs to lead a generational conversation about fiscal stewardship, the role of the federal government and America's deficit spending crisis. Inspired by the work of our early advisor, the late U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D., the Foundation's first major project was the Millennial Debt Commission. The business-led Commission is made up of 20 millennial business leaders from across the country working towards a framework for long-term deficit reduction and stabilization of the national debt. The business leaders have been advised by a cohort of current and former members of Congress, leading economists and policy experts. MDF is a nonpartisan, Tennessee-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit funded by individual donors and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.
