Revenue for Gruter Institute programs comes from private foundations, academic institutions, individuals and the government.
Private Foundations and Academic Institutions
The Gruter Institute receives support from private foundations for research and programmatic activities. These foundations include the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, the Cerge Foundation, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Volkswagen Stiftung. Universities provide co-sponsored research funding and assistance for symposia, workshops, and conferences. Notable institutions who have participated in this capacity include Harvard University; the Center for Advanced Studies in the Behavioral Sciences; University of California, San Francisco; Arizona State University Law School; Humboldt University, Berlin; George Mason University School of Law; and the University of California, Berkeley.
Several individuals have made multi-year grants to support research programs and/or conferences. As a non-profit institution, such contributions are tax-deductible and can be made directly by check to the Gruter Institute at the Portola Valley address listed below. The Gruter Institute is most appreciative of this support.
Researchers attract grants each year from a variety of government agencies for specific research projects. Gruter Institute administration of such grants facilitates multidisciplinary collaborations between institutions at a minimal overhead cost.
Donations to the Gruter Institute for Law and Behavioral Research are most appreciated. The Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Internal Revenue Service states that the deductible amount of a charitable contribution is limited to the value of cash or property donated minus what the donor receives in return in exchange for the contribution. The Gruter Institute will provide donors with a receipt to file with tax records as proof of a gift. Donations may be mailed to the main office:
