You can defend liberty by helping Hillsdale College teach truth, goodness, and beauty.

Hillsdale College is offering the “Introduction to Western Philosophy” course for free because we live in an age in which most colleges have embraced the “postmodern” idea that knowledge—and truth—is relative.

This relativism teaches the young to seek opinions that simply validate their beliefs rather than actively pursuing knowledge of enduring things. 

But human beings were made for so much more. As Winston Churchill wrote, a life that does not pursue answers to fundamental questions is “barren.” 

Education is indispensable to a complete life, and our surest defense against dangerous ideas. “Introduction to Western Philosophy” is a much-needed antidote to the destructive ideologies taught in universities across the nation.

But promoting this new online course nationwide requires significant resources, making your support vital.

Will you partner with Hillsdale to promote “Introduction to Western Philosophy”—especially to younger Americans—as well as expand Hillsdale’s other educational outreach efforts on behalf of liberty? 

Hillsdale College’s national educational outreach efforts include: 

  • Increasing the number of students taking free online courses.
  • Growing the readership of Imprimis, Hillsdale’s digest of liberty.  
  • Teaching thousands of K-12 students by founding and supporting dozens of classical K-12 charter schools. 
  • Promoting constitutional education online through social media and over the air on the radio.

We cannot waste any time in this critical year for America. 

Your generous tax-deductible gift today will help ensure that any citizen wishing to learn will have access, free of charge, to Hillsdale’s archive of free online courses—including “Introduction to Western Philosophy.” 

One other thing you should know. Hillsdale College accomplishes all of its work while refusing to accept one penny of government funding—not even indirectly in the form of federal or state student loans and grants.

That means the College is entirely dependent on the support of private citizens like you who understand the importance of education to liberty. 

Please make a generous, tax-deductible gift today to help promote this new free online course, as well as support the College’s other outreach efforts that defend liberty through education. You can use this secure form below:
