Donate to National Review and Join the National Review 1955 Society

For 58 years, National Review has had a profound impact on the American conservative movement — certainly because of the efforts and vision of its founder, William F. Buckley Jr., but also because of the generous support of people like you. We’re in this together. And with your help, National Review will continue strong for years to come.

So please be as generous as you can . . . Any amount given is selfless, a sign of real concern, an act of generosity, and for those reasons and many more, deeply appreciated.

But what if you are able and willing to be particularly generous? . . .​

A contribution of $1,000 or more entitles you to membership in The National Review 1955 Society, newly established for those who wish to help NR reach millions more in our mutual mission to propagate those principles we hold dear, so we can reduce the aggrandized state, enhance free markets, defend liberty, break the Left’s monopoly on the academy, and reinvigorate our passion for American Exceptionalism.

The levels of 1955 Society membership, and the associated benefits, are below.
