About The Yankee Institute

"Everyone in Connecticut should be Free to Succeed"

The Yankee Institute develops and advances free-market, limited-government solutions in Connecticut. As one of America’s oldest state-based think tanks, Yankee is a leading advocate for smart, limited government; fairness for taxpayers; and an open road to opportunity.

Together, we can make Connecticut a great place to work, retire and see our children prosper. Together, we can:

  • Revive Connecticut’s economy and job market;
  • Make our state affordable for  young people, families and retirees;
  • Restore balance between citizens and government workers; and
  • Create a fertile environment for all businesses to grow, rather than helping just the “connected” few.

The Yankee Institute for Public Policy Studies is a 501(c)(3) research and citizen education organization that does not accept government funding. All donations are tax-deductible.
