I’m making $5,000 available to Objectivist oriented high school and college groups.
The money can be used for organizing events, socials, group travel, book or audio purchases, or independent projects that help spread the ideas of Objectivism in clear, valuable ways.
There are only a few ground rules for applying:
- 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
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.
