You're Invited to The Atlas Society's 7th Annual Fundraising Gala

At The Atlas Society, we are dedicated to promoting Ayn Rand’s philosophy and our mission is to help individuals understand and embrace the principles of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom, and to inspire them to take action to make the most of their lives.

We are inviting YOU to help us achieve this mission, by attending our 7th Annual Gala this fall.

This is our largest fundraising event of the year and by attending, you are enabling us to continue creating resources that promote Objectivism and help people apply its principles to their own lives, so they can achieve their full potential and pursue their own happiness.

By attending this event and supporting The Atlas Society, you’ll not only have the chance to meet many inspiring individuals, but you’ll also be contributing to the growth and continued success of an organization that is working to promote the values that you hold dear.
