PERC—The Property and Environment Research Center—is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Who funds PERC?
As a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, PERC relies on donations from foundations (90% of its annual budget), individuals (8% of its annual budget), and corporations (less than 2% of its annual budget). In order to maintain independence, PERC accepts no government funding. Our donor base has changed over time, but since our founding we have consistently championed property rights and markets as solutions for environmental issues.
