Mission

DonorsTrust is the community foundation for the liberty movement. Through our donor advised fund, we make grants to charities that do not rely on government funding but do promote the foundations of civil society: limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise. We seek to encourage philanthropy and individual giving, as opposed to governmental involvement, as an answer to society's needs.

Our unique philosophical cornerstone is a commitment to preserving and defending donor intent. Over time, we have too often witnessed philanthropic capital stray from an original donor's free-market ideals – the very principles that made their philanthropy possible in the first place. As an antidote to this drift, DonorsTrust was established as a 501(c)(3) public charity to ensure the intent of donors dedicated to the ideals of liberty.

We are well positioned to alleviate, through education, research and private initiative, society's most pervasive and radical needs. We are quite proud of our clients who meet this challenge by giving generously to public policy organizations and also to organizations relating to social welfare, religion, health, the environment, economics, governance, foreign relations, and arts and culture.
