Thank you for visiting our website. I regret to inform you that after careful consideration, The Heartland Institute will not be hosting an Anniversary Benefit Dinner this year.

Heartland’s 2016 event was one of its biggest ever, with nearly 500 people in attendance. P.J. O’Rourke was a delight. He provided some hearty laughs at a time when many of us were consumed with worry about the future of our nation. Morton Blackwell also delivered an inspiring message of hope after accepting The Heartland Institute’s Liberty Prize.

A video playlist from the event is on this page. I hope you watch the videos, “like” them, and forward the links to people you know.

We have several exciting events coming up within the next couple of months. I hope you will consider attending them! For more information, visit Heartland’s Events page.

We are eager to reach our fundraising goal of $6 million in 2017. For more information on how you can help Heartland advance the cause of liberty with your financial support, please contact Gwendalyn Carver, director of development, by phone at 312/377-4000, ext. 114, or by email at Your contributions will help Heartland continue to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.
