The Liberty Foundation was started to face the fundamental challenge of our time: How do we create a better society and better environment for this generation and the generations to come? Searching for the answer(s) to this guiding question has become the prime directive of the Liberty Foundation and its friends and supporters. United in this cause, we have been able to establish a literal foundation to undertake projects of increasing magnitude and scope for the benefit of humanity.
Creation – The foundation started with contributions in the form of gifts and donations from Sailesh R. and Manidipa Chowdhury, members of the Chowdhury Family, friends of the Chowdhury Family, and Basic Commerce and Industries (BCI), a US-based systems and software engineering firm.
Policy – The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority for its operation. The source of financial support of the foundation’s operation and programming is from the gifts, donations, and proceeds from events, sponsored and organized by the foundation. The trustees and advisors of the foundation explore opportunities to pursue the foundation’s goals, recommending and approving projects for funding.
