Do you enjoy reading our reasoned and reflective essays at The Imaginative Conservative, as we pursue the Good, the True, and the Beautiful? Do you enjoy engaging in discussions of culture, history, politics, and economics, in the tradition of Russell Kirk, Edmund Burke, Richard Weaver, Eric Voegelin, Christopher Dawson, and other leaders of Imaginative Conservatism? Do you believe that the American Republic will only remain free if our people are educated and virtuous? If so, we would be appreciative if you would support us in one or more of these five ways.
Though our journal is free to our readers—and advertisement-free, unlike most conservative journals—it is not free to produce. You can make a contribution today by clicking here, or on the button below, or by mailing a check to us at 9600 Long Point Rd., Suite 300, Houston, TX, 77055. The Imaginative Conservative is sponsored by The Free Enterprise Institute. Your donation to the Institute in support of The Imaginative Conservative is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
