As a private organization, the ACLU of Utah receives no government funding and never charges its clients for legal representation. Our existence depends entirely upon private donations, foundation grants, court-awarded legal fees from successful cases, and membership dues. Contributions to the ACLU of Utah provide the resources necessary for a vigorous defense of the fundamental liberties outlined in the Constitution and its Bill of Rights, and they can be made to one of the ACLU of Utah's two separate corporate entities: the ACLU of Utah Union or the ACLU of Utah Foundation. Individuals who wish to financially support our efforts can do so in a variety of different ways.
Make a Tax-Deductible Donation
Supporters can make a tax-deductible donation to the ACLU of Utah Foundation. The entire affiliate legal program as well as our public policy and educational programs are supported by gifts to the ACLU of Utah Foundation.
Make a Gift in Honor of a Friend or Loved One
Supporters can also make a tax-deductible donation to the ACLU of Utah Foundation in honor of a friend (for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion) or to remember a loved one. The entire affiliate legal program as well as our public policy and educational programs are supported by gifts to the ACLU of Utah Foundation.
Become a Card Carrying Member
A strong, broad membership base enables the ACLU to weigh in on the important issues of the day and lobby for civil liberties and civil rights protections at both the local and national levels. Membership dues go to the ACLU of Utah Union to help fund Utah's important work at the state legislature and our national office's work in Congress. Membership contributions are not tax-deductible.
Join the more than 550,000 people nationwide -- over 2,500 of them in Utah -- who are card-carrying members of the ACLU.
