Support the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism

At the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism (CISC), we believe that the preservation of freedom requires citizens to understand the principles and institutions that distinguish free from unfree societies. Specifically, our mission is to examine and to increase public knowledge of the moral foundations of capitalism. In pursuit of this mission, we teach, we write, we offer scholarships, and we host public lectures.

The CISC has two giving opportunities: the Lyceum Annual Scholars Fund and the Clemson Capitalism Initiative.

When you donate to the Lyceum Annual Scholars Program Fund, you are investing in the future of the Lyceum Scholars Program. With your assistance, we are able to attract the best students by providing scholarships and an education not offered anywhere else, an education dedicated to studying liberty, capitalism, the American Founding, and moral character.
