Donations to the Institute for Justice enable us to represent our clients at no cost to them—and to stand with them no matter how long their cases take. And when we win for our clients, we secure precedent that protects the rights of all Americans.

IJ’s work is powered by nearly 10,000 supporters from across the country who believe in the Constitution and its ideals. More than 80% of our funding comes from individuals like you. Please join our fight for freedom and justice today.
