NATIONAL REVIEW, INC., FAQ

What is National Review?
National Review was founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley Jr. as a magazine of conservative opinion. The magazine has since defined the modern conservative movement and enjoys the broadest allegiance among American conservatives.

Today, National Review publishes a magazine 24 times a year in several formats, including print and digital. National Review also produces a 24/7 website, www.nationalreview.com, which publishes a significant amount of content in addition to what’s found in the magazine. This online content includes articles, blogs, videos, podcasts, and slideshows. (For more information see the National Review website FAQ.)

National Review also hosts multiple events each year, from seminars and panels in Washington, D.C., to luxury cruises with top writers and staff to the most desirable global destinations.

Where is National Review located?
National Review’s home office is in New York City. The address is 19 West 44th Street, Suite 1701, New York, N.Y. 10036.

How is National Review organized as a business?
On August 1, 2015, the magazine and website — corporately National Review, Inc. — became a wholly owned subsidiary of National Review Institute (NRI), which was founded by William F. Buckley Jr. as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1991. Following the reorganization, National Review has remained America’s most influential magazine for conservative news, commentary, and opinion, while National Review Institute provides high-quality conservative programming that complements and expands upon the critical legacy and mission entrusted to both organizations by Buckley.

Can I view the National Review masthead?

Why would I donate to National Review?
For more than 60 years, National Review has fought on behalf of the conservative causes it espouses and the movement William F. Buckley Jr. founded. The one thing that has made that possible is the financial support of committed conservatives. While National Review does see revenue from advertising, both in the print magazine and on the website, the donations of those who stand with conservatism and National Review’s principles are what keep it operational.
