The Institute for Justice exists to come to the aid of individuals across the country who want to do the simple things every American has the right to do—but can’t because the government is standing in their way. And we couldn’t do it without you!

As you will read throughout this issue of Liberty & Law, your gift to IJ will help us secure long-fought victories for economic liberty, educational choice, property rights, and free speech. It will also help us break new ground for individual liberty.

No matter how you want to give, we have an option for you.

Want Your Gift to Go Even Further?
You could double or triple your contribution to IJ by applying for a matching donation with your employer. Some companies even match donations made by a retiree or a spouse. Visit IJ’s website to see if your company has a matching gift policy and how to apply.

Want to Leave a Legacy Through IJ’s Work?
Providing for IJ through your will or living trust costs you nothing now but can make a big impact on our future and the lives of those we help. These gifts also entitle you to membership in IJ’s Four Pillars Society.

Want to Support IJ All Year Long?
IJ’s Merry Band is a special group of donors who contribute monthly, providing the steady income we need to make tangible results for liberty while keeping our donation processing costs low.

Have Appreciated Stock You Don’t Need?
By donating stock to IJ, not only do you receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the shares you give, but you also avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

Want to Keep Your Tax-Free Money Tax Free?
Donors age 70½ or older can transfer up to $100,000 from their IRAs to support IJ’s mission. These gifts are not subject to income tax and can also count toward your required minimum distribution.

Want to Give Later, but Don’t Want to Change Your Will?
Naming IJ as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other account is an easy way for you to make a gift without the need to change an existing will or other financial plans.

Want Income for Life?
You can establish a charitable gift annuity with IJ for as little as $10,000 and receive a tax deduction now and quarterly annuity payments for life. Those age 65 and older are eligible.

Want More Ideas?
Did you know you can support IJ by recommending a grant through your donor advised fund, by giving Bitcoin, or with a car donation?

Want to Keep It Simple?
You can give by credit card or check using the envelope in this newsletter, or you can donate online at
