hard to become the broadest-supported think tank in North Carolina. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, nonpartisan think tank
supported entirely from voluntary contributions. We do not and would not accept government funds. We have received support
from nearly 1,500 individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Tax Deductibility Statement:
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity tax-exempt educational foundation, IRS Identification #56-1656943.
Your entire contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed under the law for contributions to a public charity. Depending
on the level of support, you will receive, without requesting, certain Locke Foundation publications. As the publications
of the Locke Foundation are available to the general public on an equal basis upon request, the receipt of the publications
does not have a value for tax purposes that reduces the deductible amount of your contribution. To ensure compliance with
IRS regulations, the Foundation recommends you consult with a tax professional if you have any questions about this, or
any other tax issues.
