"The Institute's intellectual capital far exceeds its financial capital, making it the most cost-effective organization of its kind. Although the impact of our ideas dwarfs our financial resources, we still need the latter. There is not a better bargain to be had."

— Walter B. Wriston

An investment in the Manhattan Institute is a demonstration of belief in the intellectual and moral ideals that our scholars advance: economic choice; individual liberty; the rule of law; free markets; and responsible governance. Your contribution also represents a uniquely American approach to social engagement, in which private citizens, foundations, and organizations direct their resources to the causes of their choosing. MI’s trustees, scholars, and staff deeply value this trust, your contribution, and the confidence it signifies.
