The ACLU-WA Foundation advances civil liberties and civil rights through litigation, research, and education. Many supporters make their larger contributions to the Foundation because it can receive tax-deductible gifts. You can also support the Foundation through employer matching programs, gifts of stock, and through bequests and living trusts, beneficiary designations, and life income plans. Your gift is shared between the ACLU of Washington Foundation and the national ACLU Foundation.
The ACLU is comprised of two organizations, the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU Foundation. Contributions to ACLU foundations are tax deductible for charitable purposes, while ACLU membership dues are not. [ ? ]
