Want to make your gift dollars go further? Thousands of companies, small and large, have matching gift programs that will match one-to-one, two-to-one and sometimes even three-to-one, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Your employer may be one of them!

There are many way that you can make a gift through your will or living trust. You also can transfer cash, securities or stock to the ACLU Foundation, on behalf of the ACLU of Indiana Foundation. One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the ACLU Foundation is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. Contact the ACLU Foundation at 877-867-1025 or legacy@aclu.org for help setting up a lifelong or legacy gift to the ACLU.

The ACLU of Indiana coordinates a grassroots advocacy group that includes hundreds of activists organized around issues important to them. Sign up to receive email alerts when constituent lobbying is needed at the federal or state level around legislation that impacts civil liberties.

If your company has a matching gift program, all you have to do is obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office or matching gift coordinator, fill it out completely, and send it along with your contribution to:

American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana
Attn: Development Director
1031 E. Washington St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the ACLU Foundation is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
