On December 15, The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) received news that a donor, who wished to remain anonymous, had offered to match any donation received by AHI before the end of the year up to $40,000. Thanks to a wide and generous network of supporters, that goal was reached and surpassed in two weeks.  On behalf of all of us at the AHI, we express our heartfelt gratitude for this outpouring of support.

With impressive speed, friends of AHI spread the word. We received donations from stalwart supporters who have been with us from the beginning as well as new friends who investigated what we do and liked what they saw. This matching grant will allow AHI to enter 2021 with the ability to continue time-tested programs and to undertake several scalable initiatives now in the planning stages.

“AHI has a wide network of friends across the country,” observed President Robert Paquette.  “They stepped to the plate to help us with impressive speed.  We are deeply grateful to them. The overwhelming majority of individual donations ranged from $25 to $250.  In making them, many supporters commented on the quality of AHI programming and its timeliness given current cultural battles.  The past year has left many citizens exhausted, unsettled, and anxious. For that reason, the response to the challenge grant has been all the more gratifying.  May it be a sign of a happier and healthier New Year.”
