The ACLU-NJ's work to protect the enduring values of freedom and equality is based on a three-pronged approach: litigation, public education, and lobbying.

In order to support all three advocacy tools and to comply with federal tax law, it is necessary to have two organizational entities: the ACLU-NJ and the ACLU-NJ Foundation. Fully funding both is vital to protecting civil liberties in New Jersey and across the country.

Many donors choose to make their larger tax-deductible gifts to the ACLU-NJ Foundation, but also continue to make smaller gifts to the ACLU-NJ in order to maintain their "card-carrying" membership status with the ACLU-NJ and to support our important lobbying efforts.
