"The IEA continues to show the vitality and relevance of free market economics." – David Willetts MP
If you believe in low taxes, free markets, a small state and the freedom to make decisions about how you run your life, we hope you will consider donating to the IEA.
The IEA is an educational research charity. We do not accept or seek government funding and we’re reliant on donations from individuals, companies and charitable trusts to carry out our mission.
If economic and social freedom is a cause you believe is worth defending, we urge you to support our work by making a donation either as an individual or company.
No donation is too small and we ensure all our donors are kept updated, but if you were to consider giving at one of the following levels we would be most grateful.

The UK government allows charities to claim back the tax on charitable donations if you are a UK tax payer and have or will pay sufficient tax on your income.
At the current basic tax rate of 20% we can reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give to the IEA.
Higher rate tax payers
If you pay higher rate tax, you can also claim the difference between the higher rate of tax (40%) and the basic rate (20%) on the total (gross) value of your donation.
