How Your Donation Helps

  • Your contribution enables 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 receives no money from the government. Our work is powered by more than 10,000 supporters across the country who believe in the Constitution and the ideals it enshrines. Over 80% of our funding comes from individuals like you.
  • There is no better investment for defending liberty than IJ. We have litigated more than 300 cases on behalf of more than 1,000 people and turned once obscure issues like civil forfeiture and eminent domain abuse into subjects of national outrage.
  • IJ is a good steward of donor money, having received Charity Navigator’s top rating 20 years in a row. GuideStar, another respected charity evaluator, has given IJ its Platinum Seal of Transparency, and GreatNonprofits, a Yelp-like review site for charities, has named IJ a 2021 Top-Rated organization thanks to outstanding donor reviews. 

The old saying goes ‘You can’t fight City Hall.’ I say, ‘Oh yes, you can.’ With IJ’s help, my neighbors and I did—and we won!
