The Latest Help Us Celebrate Discovery Institute’s 25th Anniversary!

Members and Friends of Discovery Institute:

Twenty-five years ago, Bruce Chapman and George Gilder founded Discovery Institute with big ideas and a modest budget. Today, Discovery is nationally and internationally recognized as the home to the intelligent design movement; as a stalwart believer in the ingenuity, creativity and dignity of human beings; and as innovators in education, technology and economic policy.

Whether you are a longtime fan of our work or new to the Discovery Institute family, I invite you to join us as we celebrate our Silver Anniversary! We have an exciting array of events and programs this year. Several are listed below, with additional plans still in the works. I hope you will be a part of what is sure to be an informative and entertaining year ahead!

If you would like to make a donation to Discovery Institute in honor of our Anniversary and in support of these Anniversary events, visit our online giving page.

Sincerest and best regards,

Steven J. Buri
