Liberty Fund develops, supervises, and finances its own educational activities to foster thought and encourage discourse on enduring issues pertaining to liberty.
These programs focus on the place individual liberty has in an intellectual heritage evident from ancient times and continuing through our own times. The programs are intended to enrich understanding and appreciation of the complex nature of a society of free and responsible individuals and to contribute to its preservation.
As a tax-exempt, private operating foundation, Liberty Fund’s purposes are educational and intellectual. Liberty Fund does not, therefore, engage in politics or political action of any kind. Liberty Fund fulfills its mission by conducting programs, not by awarding grants to outside organizations or individuals.
Liberty Fund activities are concentrated in three areas:
Liberty Fund publishes up to ten or more books each year covering topics in history, politics, philosophy, law, education, and economics. Liberty Fund books can be found in many personal and academic libraries around the world and have been adopted for classroom use by hundreds of colleges and universities.
Each year, Liberty Fund conducts over 150 conferences throughout the United States, Canada, Latin America, and Europe.
Liberty Fund’s four educational web properties (OLL, Econlib, Law & Liberty, and Liberty Review) offer online libraries, blogs, podcasts, forums, discussions, and more to encourage a dialogue of ideas pertaining to liberty.
