Support IWP

National security is the highest public policy priority and is achieved by teaching future leaders all the instruments of power. Supporting IWP makes this possible.

IWP is the independent graduate school of national security, intelligence, and international affairs. Help us forge future leaders!

National security is the highest public policy priority. Without it, nothing else in a country’s public life is possible – neither economic activity, domestic governance, the exercise of civil liberties, nor even organized charitable work.

How effectively this security is achieved – while protecting our liberties – depends heavily on how well educated our leaders are in the use of all the instruments of power – especially those that minimize the necessity of using force. Supporting the Institute is the best way to help ensure that many of our leaders possess this essential education. Donate online here.

The Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt educational institution. It is privately supported by donations from foundations, corporations and individuals, and licensed by the District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission. Contributions to the Institute are tax-deductible. State Registration Disclosures are available here.

Our tax ID number is 52-1699641.

Thank you for your interest in supporting The Institute of World Politics!
