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.

The Russell Kirk Center is a nonprofit educational organization and its work is sustained by kind donors. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible according to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. By partnering with the Kirk Center, you join in the great tradition that transmits those enduring norms and principles that Kirk called the Permanent Things to the rising generations.
