“The Independent Institute is excellent in critically analyzing the failures of government and in so doing, redefining the debate over major social and economic issues. The Institute’s superb publications, conferences, and media programs are providing the cutting edge for the future of liberty.”
—Walter E. Williams

Independent offers a Charitable Gift Annuity plan that provides the donor guaranteed income for life and an immediate tax deduction. We also welcome gifts in the form of Bequests by Will, Life Insurance, and Retirement Plan Assets. Society members are celebrated through a framed certificate, lapel pin, and opportunities to participate in members-only events.
