Investing in FDD
Our world today is extremely volatile. We at FDD expect to fight many difficult battles in the days ahead. We have much to do – work that needs to get done. FDD is well positioned to continue helping Washington’s policy makers connect the dots, identify the most critical national security challenges, and offer creative ideas for tackling these most important issues.
We are fortunate to have a very special group of supporters who understand how much is at stake in this critical moment in history; who agree with FDD’s mission and understand its importance; and who provide us with the means to fight the battles that must be fought. We hope that we can count on you to be in our leadership.
FDD is a 501(c)(3) public charity and all donations are tax-deductible. FDD welcomes investors making contributions of $10,000 or greater to join our Trustee Circle, President’s Circle, Leadership Circle, or Chairman’s Circle. Learn more about FDD’s investment levels here.

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a Washington, DC-based nonpartisan 501(c)(3) research institute focusing on national security and foreign policy.
FDD conducts in-depth research, produces accurate and timely analyses, identifies illicit activities, and provides policy options – all with the aim of strengthening U.S. national security and reducing or eliminating threats posed by adversaries and enemies of the United States and other free nations.
In addition to its in-house experts, FDD proudly collaborates with and seeks counsel from a range of distinguished advisors. FDD houses three centers on American power, which include FDD’s Center on Military and Political Power, FDD’s Center on Economic and Financial Power, and FDD’s Center on Cyber and Technology Innovation.
FDD's Security Fund
Given the ongoing threats we face, it is clear that FDD needs to do much more to bolster its overall security, including for FDD personnel and data.
FDD's Planned Giving Program
As a forward thinking and proactive organization, FDD can provide investors with an important and lasting legacy by giving them the opportunity to build a solid foundation from which FDD can fight the battles that must be fought over the years ahead. The important issues that our organization addresses today will still exist in the foreseeable future. We want to continue creating a safer world for our children and grandchildren to live in, and we hope to have your help in doing so.
FDD Future Campaign
Establishing an FDD endowment will perpetuate your values and priorities well into the future. Endowment giving is by no means a substitute for annual giving, but rather the ultimate expression of your values and priorities – a way to shape the world in which your children and grandchildren will live.
An endowment may be established during your lifetime or as a part of your estate plan. Almost anything of value may form the basis of your endowment gift to FDD. Cash, most appreciated property, retirement assets or real estate may offer you tax and planning advantages in addition to the opportunity of advancing the causes championed by FDD. We know that every endowment gift is unique, so we offer you our planning expertise and encourage you to speak with your professional advisors. We look forward to continuing the conversation with you.
