Independence Institute

About Independence Institute

A central role of an effective think tank is to produce quality research and analysis. For over 30 years we have provided research resulting in changes in law and policy. But we have never been content with just research. We are more than a think tank. We are an “action tank.” We put our ideas into action through groundbreaking litigation, activist training, work on ballot initiatives, new media and investigative reporting. We don’t just fight on paper. We fight for freedom on the streets, in the statehouse, in the media, on the ballot, and in the courts.

The Independence Institute was incorporated in Colorado in 1985 and was issued an IRS determination letter in 1985 recognizing it as tax exempt under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). The Institute remains a highly respected voice in the non-profit community today.
