A think tank is a research institute that performs research and advocacy concerning topics such as social policy, political strategy, economics, military, technology, and culture.

Most think tanks are non-governmental organizations, but some are semi-autonomous agencies within government or are associated with particular political parties or businesses. Think-tank funding often includes a combination of millionaire donations and individual contributions, with many also accepting government grants.

Many think tanks are organized as non-profit.
