I’m making $20,000 available to Objectivist, libertarian, and pro-reason, pro-capitalism, pro-Western student-aged professionals running their own groups or projects.
The money can be used for organizing events, socials, group travel to conferences, book or audio purchases, or independent projects that help spread the ideas that move civilization in clear, valuable ways.
There are only a few ground rules for applying, besides being ideologically compatible:
- Groups must not apologize for or whitewash their ideas to appeal to larger audiences.
- Groups must provide clear measurements for “success” in advance of receiving funds.
- Groups must commit to a 15 minute monthly check-in session
If you’re interested, you can apply below!
What’s in it for you?
I don’t believe in giving to most charities. If I give money at all, I prefer to give directly to the beneficiaries and have direct oversight over how that money is used, and I prefer to get some return on my investment. My “return” in this case is access to intelligent students and involvement in spreading ideas that I think matter. And I expect a return on my investment.
I really don’t like the word student nor that fact that almost every young person today shares that label. If you’re a student-aged young person, you’ll be eligible for this too even if you aren’t in school. In fact, I prefer you didn’t got to school because I consider it a total waste of time for most people.
Will you give to my non-profit?
