Why Give To IPS?


We Must Not Sit On The Sidelines

Our world is beset with battles over philosophy, doctrine, politics, economics, and education.  If we have truth, it is wrong to withhold that truth.  It is also wrong not to work diligently to communicate that truth.

The principles that IPS teaches and promotes are not just academic concerns.  These principles have a substantial impact on our families and world.  Hundreds of millions of people will suffer and millions will die this year because wrong ideas about government and economics are being taught and believed.  We cannot just stand and watch.

IPS Has The Foundational Truth

If you have read our publications or attended one of our classes or seminars, you know that IPS has a unique and powerful message. Who else is teaching these exciting fundamental principles?  Who else is painting the big picture by weaving principled truth through government, economics, history and theology?

We Must Compete For Hearts & Minds

Our ideological opponents are spending billions of dollars to teach and promote their philosophies.  The question is this: “How much are we willing to spend to counter these efforts?”

Will we give as much as we spend at Starbucks?  Or on cable TV? What about a car payment? Or will we assume that someone else will give?

Although we ought to be willing to give sacrificially, it is actually a pleasure and a blessing to invest time and money into a great work.

IPS Has The Opportunities

We have been blessed with ample opportunities to promote our message. In fact, we have more opportunities than resources.  This is why we really need your help.

3 Reasons to Become a CSC

Least Overhead


Fundraising takes time.  Every hour that we spend fundraising is an hour that is not devoted to writing, teaching, or promoting the message of liberty and truth.  Fundraising is a necessary and important part of the work of any non-profit organization, but you get more “bang for the buck” if we spend less time doing it.


Better Planning


Planning and budgeting are also much easier when an organization has a regular and dependable stream of revenue.  As we plan and strategize, we can do so more effectively when more of our income is predictable. CSC donors provide this predictable, higher yield revenue.


Easier Giving


Regular giving has benefits for our donors as well.  Some people prefer to make a larger one-time annual gift–and these are wonderful.  Giving out of a year-end bonus or other annual bounty is a great way to support IPS.  But for most of us, monthly giving is a great option.  Monthly giving can be a way to comfortably increase your annual support without feeling as much effect on the checkbook.

Whether you give monthly, quarterly or annually, your contribution supports the work of IPS, but we believe that these are some good reasons to consider becoming a CSC giver as you decide how you want to have an impact on society.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees.  This can be dollar for dollar or even as much as 4:1.

For most companies, it’s as simple as filling out a form. Some bigger companies outsource this function through other organizations, but the process is still easy to complete.

All you have to do is ask your employer if they match charitable contributions and then fill out the necessary paperwork. That’s it!

Your donations are now the most effective they can be by being doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled!
