Become a Pioneer Member


Pioneer Institute has provided exclusive opportunities to supporters ever since our founding in 1988. Membership at Pioneer Institute begins with an annual gift at the $1,000 level and offers an invaluable set of benefits, all designed to help you become remarkably involved with the direction of Massachusetts public policy.

In addition to our quarterly newsletter, membership benefits include:

Exclusive invitations to quarterly member breakfast series
Our catered breakfasts occur four times each year at prestigious venues throughout Boston and feature speakers who are experts in their fields. Past breakfast topics have included international trade, urban revitalization, legal system reform, and the life of Milton Friedman.

VIP invitations to signature Pioneer events
In addition to our core portfolio of policy events, Pioneer hosts three signature events annually: the Hewitt Health Care Lecture, the Better Government Competition Awards Dinner, and the Lovett C. Peters Lecture. Pioneer offers members exclusive VIP access to these events, including special ticketing packages and members-only receptions with keynote speakers.

Networking opportunities with other Pioneer supporters
Our member base includes local business leaders, state policy makers, and individuals who support Pioneer’s vision of effective, limited and accountable government. Membership at Pioneer offers valuable networking opportunities for our supporters through member events, special member outreach, and individual access to Pioneer staff.

Special recognition in our Annual Report
Pioneer produces an annual report detailing the year’s successes, achievements, and financial information. Our members receive exclusive recognition in this report, which is distributed to organizations, individuals, and policy entities throughout the state.

Gift membership for a friend
We recognize the value of membership with Pioneer and want to extend the opportunity for our members to involve friends, colleagues, and family members who might benefit from what we offer. Your gift membership will provide full benefits and exclusive involvement with Pioneer – a $1,000 value – to someone of your choosing.
