Matching gift offer! Help preserve and defend the free exchange of scientific ideas by supporting Hillsdale’s Academy for Science and Freedom.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, widespread and aggressive moves have been made against both the individual and academic freedom required to conduct and interpret science. 

Instead of open and free discourse to seek the scientific truths, the opposite way of thinking has taken hold. 

Scientists whose research and data interpretation differ from the desired “narrative” were ignored, silenced, censored, and slandered. Academia and the research community, dominated by a single viewpoint, now actively engage in intimidation and false declarations of consensus, and they abuse the peer-review system for publishing findings. 

These dangerous trends threaten the free exchange of ideas essential to republican government and the public good. 

That’s why Hillsdale College formed its Academy for Science and Freedom. This new effort, led by national and international scholars, will provide a framework for study and discourse that will educate and inform the citizens and leaders who must face the inevitable public health crises to come.

Hillsdale College’s Academy for Science and Freedom will achieve this goal by educating the American people about the free exchange of scientific ideas and the proper relationship between freedom and science in the pursuit of truth. 

Your generous tax-deductible gift today will support:

  • Scientific workshops and conferences with in-residence scholars
  • Visiting scholar opportunities for scientists from across the world
  • The publication of opinion pieces in newspapers, magazines, books, and digital media
  • Media and government outreach, including conferences, panel discussions, interviews, and testimony

In keeping with its principles, Hillsdale College operates this initiative—as it does all its work—without accepting ONE PENNY of taxpayer funding—even indirectly in the form of student grants or loans. This independence means that the private support of citizens like you is critical to our efforts.

Anonymous donors are currently offering to match any contributions for the Academy for Science and Freedom endowment $1-for-$1, up to $1 million in total. To qualify, gifts must be made and pledges paid in full by December 31, 2023.

Will you lend your support to this worthy endeavor and have your tax-deductible gift matched dollar-for-dollar?

Yes! I want to help provide a platform for free, reasoned, and civil discourse in scientific research on issues of public health and provide educational opportunities for citizens in general through Hillsdale’s Academy for Science and Freedom—all without ONE PENNY of government funding.
