The Sir Antony Fisher Freedom Society recognizes Pacific Research Institute’s closest friends and most loyal supporters, those who contribute gifts of $1,000 or more each year, and gives them exclusive access to PRI’s events, publications, scholars, and leadership. Members of the Society are key partners in PRI’s work to offer timely, practical solutions to policy issues important to citizens of our state and nation. Together, we are working for a free society where all individuals can achieve their full potential.
Sir Antony Fisher was a British entrepreneur, World War II Spitfire pilot, and strong believer in individual rights and limited government. Persuaded by Friedrich Hayek that the most effective way to advance these ideas would be through independent research institutes rather than political office, Fisher helped to found the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) in London in 1955, followed by a network of free-market oriented think tanks worldwide. In 1979, Fisher teamed up with San Francisco businessman James North to establish PRI.
Through membership in the Sir Antony Fisher Freedom Society, you are advancing ideas that empower individuals and communities nationwide and carrying out Fisher’s legacy at Pacific Research Institute.
