Four Pillars Society: Leave a Legacy of Liberty with IJ


The Institute for Justice recognizes friends and supporters who have made a commitment to ensuring that IJ has the resources to continue fighting for liberty as long as it is challenged. IJ established the Four Pillars Society as a way to honor our friends and supporters who have chosen to include IJ in their will or other long-term financial plans.

Since it's inception, membership in the Four Pillars Society has grown exponentially.  Every year, dozens of IJ donors inform us that they have chosen to leave a legacy of liberty by helping us advance freedom in economic liberty, private property rights, school choice and free speech.  Members of the Society help provide us with the financial support essential to achieving our strategic goals and implementing larger-scale programs than the demands of our year-to-year budget allow.  
A number of different gifts qualify you for membership in the Four Pillars Society.  The simplest include naming the Institute for Justice in your will or living trust, and making IJ a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy.  We also work with donors to set up “life-income” plans, including charitable gift annuities.  

If you are interested in more information about these or other ways to support the Institute for Justice or if you have already included IJ in your plans, please contact Melanie Hildreth at (703) 682-9320 ext 222 or so that we can thank you properly.  You can also find more details on planned giving and estate planning at
