Economic freedom drives prosperity, and the study of it is vital to the continued progress of society. Through our grant-giving, we aim to advance an understanding of how economic freedom improves the well-being of people around the world. We also aim to provide opportunities that allow people to learn more about economic freedom and contribute to its advancement. Whether it is through sponsoring a reading discussion on a college campus or through a research grant, we give because we believe the ideas of economic freedom are vital to society’s progress and worthy of support.
