The newest addition to IJ’s headquarters is a permanent wall plaque honoring those who have included the Institute for Justice in their long-term financial plans. It reads: “To recognize friends and supporters who have made a commitment to ensuring that the Institute for Justice has the resources to continue fighting for liberty as long as it is challenged, IJ established the Four Pillars Society. Each member leaves a legacy of liberty.” The Society is named for the four areas of law where IJ litigates, “four pillars” that are crucial to individual freedom and limited government: economic liberty, private property rights, school choice, and free speech. Society members can choose to be listed by name or as anonymous supporters.
You can join the Four Pillars Society by making the Institute for Justice part of your legacy. Just let us know if you have included IJ in your will, or made us the beneficiary of an IRA or life insurance policy. We can also work with you to establish a “life income” plan such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust. All these gifts provide IJ with the financial support essential to achieving our long-term goals of triumphing over tyranny and advancing liberty for all Americans.
For more information about the Four Pillars Society or any of the gifts mentioned above, please contact Melanie Hildreth at (703) 682-9320 x. 222 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also write her at 901 N. Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22203.
