The 32nd Annual Benefactor Summit will be held in New York City on May 20 to May 21, 2020. On May 20, 2020, the Cato Institute will celebrate the 10 anniversary of the biannual Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty at Cipriani’s in New York City.

The Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty, named in honor of perhaps the greatest champion of liberty in the 20th century, is presented every other year to an individual who has made a significant contribution to advance human freedom. Nominations are now closed for the Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty. More information and registration for the event will be available soon.

The late Nobel laureate Milton Friedman agreed in 2001 to lend his name to the prize, which has become the leading international award for acknowledging contributions to the promotion of individual liberty. In a statement at the time he said: “Those of us who were fortunate enough to live and be raised in a reasonably free society tend to underestimate the importance of freedom. We tend to take it for granted. It has made us in the West more complacent, so having a prize emphasizing liberty is extremely important.” Dr. Friedman died in 2006.
