The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota is an independent, non-profit educational and research organization that actively advocates the principles of individual freedom, personal responsibility, economic freedom, and limited government.

By focusing on some of the most difficult public policy issues facing Minnesota, we seek to foster greater understanding of the principles of a free society among leaders in government, the media, and the citizenry.  Founded in 2006, we hope to create a better and more vibrant future for every Minnesotan by helping shape sound public policy.  We will accomplish this important goal not by publishing lengthy, academic books and reports that no one reads.  Instead, we tackle issues important to every Minnesotan and provide real-time, proven research and policy alternatives to help further the debate.

As an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Freedom Foundation of Minnesota does not accept any government grants or funding.  Instead, we are proud to earn the trust and support of generous individuals, foundations, and corporations.
