Giving to the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Connecticut: What Is the Difference?

You can defend and advance civil liberties by donating to either the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut or the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Connecticut.

American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut: Gifts to the ACLU of Connecticut allow us the greatest flexibility in our work. While not tax deductible, they advance our extensive litigation, communications and public education programs. They also enable us to advocate and lobby in legislatures at the federal and local level to advance civil liberties. When you make a contribution to the ACLU of Connecticut, you become a “card-carrying” member who takes a stand for civil liberties. Join the ACLU of Connecticut.

American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Connecticut: If you prefer to make a tax-deductible gift, we encourage you to support the ACLU Foundation of Connecticut. Gifts to the ACLU Foundation of Connecticut support our litigation, communications, advocacy and public education efforts. With a gift of $1,000, you join the Crystal Eastman Leadership Society, a group of supporters leading the fight for equality and freedom. Give to the ACLU Foundation of Connecticut.

Regardless of how you choose to support the work of the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, we’re honored to have you as a partner in this critical work.
