Searle Focuses on Welfare,
Education, Environmental Policy
(Deadline: Jan. 4) The Searle Freedom Trust funds development of policies that advance liberty without encouraging license and
that demand personal responsibility without compromising freedom.
The foundation supports research and education on a range of U.S. domestic public policy issues, including:
• Welfare policy.
• K-12 and higher education reform.
• Environmental policy.
• Legal reform.
The foundation seeks to develop policies that encourage the transfer of responsibility from government to the private sphere, and
the transfer of power from the national to the state and local level. As much as possible, the foundation aims to relieve Americans
of the heavy hand of government so U.S. citizens can be free to generate a more free, just and prosperous society.
Insider's note: Institutions of higher education and think tanks seem to be the preferred grantees. Grants are significant, ranging
from $80,000 to $1.7 million in 2007. Grant proposals should be sent to the foundation's Washington, DC, office at: Searle Freedom
Trust, 1150 Seventeenth Street, N.W., Suite 910, Washington, DC 20036.
