Founded in 1995, Sutherland Institute is an independent research and educational institution – a think tank – whose mission is to advance sound ideas and principled public policy. Sutherland is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization and does not accept government funding. We rely on support from corporations, foundations and individuals like you that share a commitment to family, free markets and localism. Sutherland consistently promotes solutions that serve community needs and build on areas of agreement. We believe people are more alike than different – that policy matters, principles matter more, and people matter most. Our mission includes a charge to build future leaders: educated, able and willing to defend a New Birth of Freedom for the next generation.
