Since its founding in 1987, the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) has become a leading free-market public policy think tank. IPI promotes the freedom of individuals, families and organizations to pursue their own goals and dreams free from the burden of an intrusive government and unhindered by counterproductive government policies.
These values lead IPI to champion low taxes, fewer regulations, and a smaller, less-intrusive government. We trust free people to pursue their own goals within a free economy, which we believe has proven to be the best way to drive the innovation, economic growth and opportunity that Americans expect and that the world needs.
If you share our commitment to preserving America as the land of hope and opportunity through the Founders' design and through proven limited government principles, we invite you to join us.
IPI is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
