Support Our Mission

Support the Center

The Center for American Institutions relies on philanthropic community and foundation support. These resources provide support for community and student programming, research, teaching fellows, undergraduate research fellows and a dedicated team of staff members.

Your contribution to the Center for American Institutions is essential to the education and training of a future generation of leaders in their communities, the state and the nation. In this way the center fulfills Thomas Jefferson’s admonition for universities to combine academic knowledge with public life. 

"...I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is, not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education." Thomas Jefferson, Sept. 28, 1820
