Contributions sustain the work of the Foundation for Teaching Economics (FTE).
The generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations make the FTE’s
programs possible. In accord with its charter, the FTE accepts no funding
from public sources.

Contributions go entirely to support actual program expenses. All of
the administrative, overhead and fundraising costs of the FTE are paid
for by income from an endowment.
