National Review defends and advances the ordered liberty that is necessary to human flourishing and to a free, prosperous, and strong America.

Since 1955, National Review magazine has defined the modern conservative movement and enjoyed the broadest allegiance of American conservatives. National Review Institute was founded by William F. Buckley Jr. as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1991. NRI’s mission is to preserve and promote Buckley’s legacy, support the National Review mission, and advance the principles of a free society through educational and outreach programs.

A Note from the President

William F. Buckley Jr. had a special ability to bring together a range of viewpoints, to unite a broad coalition of those who believed that a free society best nurtures the individual and the culture at large. While it is inevitably true that the number of those who knew WFB personally will dwindle, it is my honor to expand the circle of those who are touched by his spirit and influenced by the principles he championed.

As we continue to grow National Review Institute’s programs, our team is eager to work with old and new friends alike.

Thank you for your support.
