Support Our 2024 Freedom Fund!

Founded in 1976, the Free Enterprise Institute’s mission is to preserve a free and virtuous American Republic. President George Washington said: “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

Please join us in keeping lit the “sacred fire of liberty” by making a donation to our 2024 Annual Freedom Fund.

The Free Enterprise Institute offers an understanding of the principles and history that have made America great since its founding. With the Founding Fathers, we know that our citizens need to be continually educated in the twin pillars of liberty and responsibility so that we may preserve our freedoms.

We teach these principles through our seminars and conferences—to students, to teachers, and community leaders. As Thomas Jefferson declared: “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.”

Our programs and publications offer a transforming encounter with the history and principles of the American Founding. Through The Imaginative Conservative, our online journal, we present millions of readers across the world with a thoughtful discussion of politics, economics, history, and culture, which enables them to contemplate the best of our American heritage and the Western tradition.

Together let us be worthy of the legacy of liberty bequeathed to us by the founders of the American Republic. We will remain steadfast in teaching the principles necessary for a free and virtuous society. Please make a contribution to the Free Enterprise Institute’s 2024 Freedom Fund today and together we will stoke the flames of “the sacred fire of liberty”!
