Our Vision

At the Fresh Pond Research Institute our goal is the production of excellent research. We founded this institute in order to create a working environment which is cooperative, supportive of independent thinking, and as free of politics and bureaucracy as is possible. If this sounds like an organization for you, please contact us.

We welcome financial contributions. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us.
