The John Adams Institute is an independent organization without subsidy and is supported financially by private sponsors and donors. This independence gives us the opportunity to work together with our sponsors, and to incorporate the interests of their communities and stakeholders into our program.


Our sponsors support us not only because of a personal interest in our programming, but also because our community is an appealing way to broaden their own horizons: whether this be through the ideas they encounter, or the people that they meet. Sponsors are encouraged to bring their business relations and employees to our events, be they public or exclusive.


Our community of sponsors help to ensure that U.S. innovation, ideas, opinions, and culture are presented to Dutch audiences in an appealing and accessible format. The John Adams Institute is a recognize not for profit organization (ANBI). We would like to acknowledge the people and companies that help make our work possible.
