The Virginia Dogwood Institute believes that: Practical and prudent fiscal policy is essential; Individuals, not the government, are the greatest source of opportunity; Education is the ultimate equalizer; and Free Markets create the highest standard of living.
The organization will develop policy ideas and positions, true to our principles, that solve problems important to Virginians and present them in an engaging and relatable format that will be targeted to identified audiences across the Commonwealth. We will activate a network of new voices.
The Virginia Dogwood Institute is a 501(c)(4) ‘action tank’ committed to creating and promoting evidence-based, innovative, public policy that fosters creativity in an open economy with prudent use of our tax dollars.
