How you're helping


ARI’s educational programs, including essay contests, Free Books to Teachers, college campus clubs, OAC and the online ARI Campus, foster an increasing interest in and understanding of Ayn Rand’s ideas among students across the U.S. and around the world.


ARI’s public debates, talks and conferences around the world, as well as our commentary at media outlets, on podcasts and in blogs, empower individuals to embrace Ayn Rand’s ideas, to apply them in the world, and to become heroes in their own lives.

On the horizon

ARI’s programs and initiatives both educate and empower young people to become what Ayn Rand called the “New Intellectuals” — those who will fight the moral battle for a culture of reason, rational self-interest and laissez-faire capitalism.

Maximize your impact


Contributors can sign up for regular automatic transfers from their bank accounts. Many prefer the convenience of this method, which provides ARI with steady, more predictable revenues.

Contribute Now


Many employers match their employees’ contributions to nonprofit organizations — some even double-match. ARI receives dozens of these gifts each year. To see if your employer will match your gifts to ARI, inquire at your employer’s personnel office.

Email Employer Matching


Consider contributing shares of stock or other marketable securities to ARI in lieu of cash. There may be significant tax advantages for you in contributing in this manner, and ARI will still receive the funding to advance Ayn Rand’s ideas.

Learn More About Securities Gifts


Over the years contributors have provided computer hardware and software, office equipment and other types of business, personal or real property, and received tax benefits. If you have something that might be of use to ARI, let us know.

Bequests & Estate Gifts

The Atlantis Legacy program integrates support of ARI with estate planning, resulting in deferred gift commitments to ARI that may also generate significant tax savings and, under some circumstances, even generate income for contributors.
