Support the Kirk Center

The Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal is a unique residential library and conference facility situated on the ancestral property of author and historian Russell Kirk in Mecosta, Michigan. Drawing upon Dr. Kirk’s scholarship, the Center’s mission is to strengthen the foundations of Western Civilization and the American experience within it. Its seminars and publications explore the means by which our cultural inheritance may be preserved and renewed to promote authentic human flourishing. Through both residential and on-campus programs, the Center provides intellectual formation in the beliefs, institutions and practices that are essential to America’s tradition of ordered liberty.
