A yearlong contribution of just $10 per month enables ARI to make a significant impact. For example, your membership can place physical or digital copies of an Ayn Rand novel into the hands of 24 students, who will receive them as assigned reading from a teacher who has already requested the books from ARI. By our best estimate, on average, each book is used two times.
At $50 per month, you can send five or six classroom sets of Ayn Rand novels to teachers—and, if you so choose, the books can be earmarked for a teacher in your local community. Alternatively, a We the Living-level membership is sufficient to cover the travel costs of two or three students who may otherwise be unable to attend an Objectivist summer conference (OCON) or an Ayn Rand Conference.
With a monthly contribution of $100, you can send books to 10 teachers (reaching an estimated 480 students within two years); you can provide class materials for 20 students at ARI’s Objectivist Academic Center (OAC); or you can sponsor a significant part of the scholarship prizes awarded to student essay contest winners.
The annual value of an Atlas Shrugged-level membership can provide a semester’s tuition and class materials for a student of ARI’s Objectivist Academic Center (OAC); it can provide free Ayn Rand novels to an entire school; or, it can send 12 students to the annual Ayn Rand Conference USA. Alternatively, it can provide nearly all of the scholarship funding for Anthem, ARI’s most popular essay contest.
