"Liberty must at all hazards be supported.
We have a right to it, derived from our Maker.
But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us,
at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure,
and their blood."
John Adams, 1765

The Patriot Foundation Trust is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable trust dedicated to affirming individual Liberty, advocating for restoration of constitutional limits on government and the judiciary, and promoting of free enterprise, national defense and traditional American values. Our objective is to restore the First Principles of Liberty, the endowed Rights of Man our Founders codified in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in our United States Constitution.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
George Washington and the delegates to the Convention

The Trust promotes Liberty by allocating our resources primarily to educating the next generation about the legacy of Liberty bequeathed to them by previous generations.

Our major initiative is to distribute millions of our highly acclaimed pocket Liberty Guides to students, civic groups and other organizations across our nation. These guides are an outstanding resource for understanding the origins and principles of Liberty. Please support this effort with your online contribution today!

"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them."
Thomas Jefferson

The Trust's primary activity is to promote and sustain the Principles of American Liberty by:

a) Providing educational resources supporting those Principles, including the distribution of our highly acclaimed "Patriot's Primer on American Liberty" and "Founders' Wisdom". For more information about how to obtain these guides, click here. (If you would like to purchased the pocket guides directly at bulk rate discounts for purposes other than those outlined above, click here.)

b) Funding educational forums and speakers for the purpose of promoting Liberty in academic and other venues.

c) Supporting limited scholarships to students and institutions committed to the advancement of Liberty.

d) Conducting other activities promoting Liberty.

"What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable,
than that of Liberty and Learning, each leaning on the other
for their mutual & surest support?"
James Madison, 1822
"If a nation expects to be ignorant—and free—in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
Thomas Jefferson, 1816

We invite you to extend the Gift of Liberty to the next generation by supporting Essential Liberty and Rule of Law today.
