The institute is funded by the voluntary contributions of thousands of committed supporters from across the state who share our belief in free markets, free people and a more prosperous Illinois. We do not accept government grants of any kind or union funding.

We welcome support from a broad range of individuals, businesses and charitable foundations that share our values and are willing to support our work for a better, brighter Illinois. All donations are tax deductible.

Because the institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization, our supporters’ names are kept private, although donors are free to share their reasons for supporting our efforts.
