Robert Schalkenbach Foundation

The Robert Schalkenbach Foundation (RSF) is a private operating foundation, founded in 1925, to promote public awareness of the social philosophy and economic reforms advocated by famed 19th century thinker and activist, Henry George.

Today, RSF remains true to its founding doctrine, and through efforts focused on education, communities, outreach, and publishing, works to create a world in which all people are afforded the basic necessities of life and the natural world is protected for generations to come.

“Men like Henry George are rare, unfortunately. One cannot 
imagine a more beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, 
artistic form and fervent love of justice. Every line is written
 as if for our generation. The spreading of these works is a
really deserving cause, for our generation especially has many
 and important things to learn from Henry George.
”

~ Albert Einstein
