Frequently Asked Questions about the Guardians of Liberty Program
Where does my money go?
Your contributions go to support our critical programs in many areas. From litigation, to education, to lobbying efforts, your monthly support gives us a reliable base to help us respond immediately when new threats to our civil liberties arise.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payment by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express) or via automatic debit from your checking account. To set up a direct debit, please call (212) 549-2543 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
When will I be charged?
Your credit card will be billed on the 15th of each month, or the first business day after if the 15th is a Saturday or Sunday.
Can I change my donation?
Yes, you can change your monthly giving amount at any time by calling (212) 549-2543 or sending an email to email@example.com.
Can I cancel?
Yes. At any time by calling (212) 549-2543 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I still need to renew my membership?
No. Your monthly pledge will automatically renew your ACLU membership, so you won't have to worry about renewing as long as your pledge is active.
Are my monthly gifts tax-deductible?
No. Gifts to the ACLU's Guardian of Liberty monthly giving program are not tax deductible. This is because legislative advocacy (supporting specific bills that enhance civil liberties protections or opposing bills that seek to erode them) is an essential part of our work.
Monthly donors (our Guardians of Liberty) enable us to respond to urgent threats to our civil liberties. They provide us with the resources to stop:
- Attempts to suppress free speech
- Politicians from denying women reproductive freedom
- Racially-biased practices in our criminal justice system
