We value our independence, and hope you do, too!

Given our scholarship involves navigating life’s most profound questions with ethics and human values as a compass, for us, independence is invaluable! And as we approach our 50th anniversary we are determined to maintain that independence for future generations.

The cost of that independence is clear: half of our operating revenue and support comes from individual donors, large and small.

Give online

Part of our funding also comes from government grants and foundations, although I don’t have to tell you that those sources are increasingly challenging.  So we continue to rely on individual donors like you to enable The Hastings Center to continue setting the standard in independent scholarship and public engagement.
