Liberty Fund was founded by Pierre F. Goodrich in 1960. In 1997 it received an $80 million donation from Goodrich's wife, Enid, increasing its assets to over $300 million.[5][6]

In November 2015, it was announced that the Liberty Fund was building a $22 million headquarters in Carmel, Indiana.[7][8]

Liberty Fund has been cited by historian Donald T. Critchlow as one of the endowed conservative foundations which laid the way for the election of U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1980.[9]


The foundation has published several books covering history, politics, philosophy, law, education, and economics. These include:

  • Liberty Fund's Natural Law and Enlightenment Series
  • Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America (Historical-Critical Edition) ISBN 9780865978409[10][11]
  • The Works and Correspondence of Adam Smith (Glasgow Edition) ISBN 9780865973695
  • David Ricardo, On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, 2010. ISBN 9780865979659[11]
  • The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo (Edited by Piero Sraffa and Maurice Dobb, 2005) ISBN 9780865979765


  • Law & LibertyLaw & Liberty’s focus is on the classical liberal tradition of law and politics and how it shapes a society of free and responsible persons. This magazine brings together serious debate, commentary, essays, book reviews, interviews, and educational material in a commitment to examining the first principles of a free society as they appear in law, history, political thought, and other aspects of culture.


Besides its main website, the Liberty Fund also sponsors the following websites:[20]

  • The Online Library of Liberty
  • Library of Economics and Liberty
  • Law & Liberty
  • Adam Smith Works


In his book The Assault on Reason, former U.S. Vice President and presidential candidate Al Gore wrote that between 2002 and 2004, 97% of the attendees at Liberty Fund training seminars for judges were Republican administration appointees. Gore suggests that such conferences and seminars are one of the reasons that judges who regularly attend such conferences "are generally responsible for writing the most radical pro-corporate, antienvironmental, and activist decisions". Referring to what he calls the "Big Three"—the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment, George Mason University's Law & Economics Center, and the Liberty Fund—Gore adds, "These groups are not providing unbiased judicial education. They are giving multithousand-dollar vacations to federal judges to promote their radical right-wing agenda at the expense of the public interest."[21]
