New video: How much has FEE changed?

We’re not sure which is more amazing, how much the digital age has expanded our outreach, or how little our principles have changed since FEE’s founding in 1946.

This fun new video begins with some footage from the 1980s that says, “Over the last 40 years, more than any other organization, FEE has acted as a first source, an introduction to the philosophy of freedom.”

FEE for the 21st Century

We’ve never stopped producing programs and educational content that bring our students in touch with these powerful ideas for the first time.

Last year, in fact, we shattered all our records for our traditional programs: life-changing seminars, inspiring public speeches and media appearances, widely-used educational resources, and popular publications.

But we’ve also taken a new approach to outreach for the 21st Century. Through the generosity of our donors, we’re taking advantage of every tool and technique now available to reach the younger generation.

More than 1 million people now visit us at every month. We continually upgrade to create user experiences that are intuitive, delightful, and apt to turn first-time visitors into regular customers.

We publish the equivalent content of a monthly magazine every day, and frequently have more readers in one day than our peak circulation of The Freeman. OnFacebook, our content now appears before over 3 million people per month!

We are advancing the moral and economic principles of a free society, just as we always have, but our audience is growing by leaps and bounds!

With our new approach to outreach for the digital age, and our timeless message of the freedom philosophy, it’s clear that our brightest days are yet to come.
