About National Review
Since 1955, National Review magazine has defined the modern conservative movement and enjoyed the broadest allegiance of American conservatives. National Review Institute was founded by William F. Buckley, Jr. as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1991. NRI’s mission is to preserve and promote Buckley’s legacy, support the National Review mission, and advance the principles of a free society through educational and outreach programs. The success of NRI’s programming over the past several years laid the foundation for a major institutional transition. On August 1, 2015, NRI and National Review underwent a significant reorganization, with the magazine and website—corporately National Review, Inc.—becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the Institute.
