Frequently Asked Questions
Are donations to your organization tax deductible (like donations to Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (CASE) d/b/a/ American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ))?
Unlike with CASE d/b/a ACLJ, donations to ACLJ Action are not tax deductible. This is because we have different tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(4) organization, as opposed to CASE/ACLJ, which has 501(c)(3) status. This different classification is what allows us to support and oppose specific legislation on behalf of our members. Your support is crucial to our mission of supporting constitutional values, liberty, and religious freedom.

Yes, you can join ACLJ Action if you are not a U.S. citizen. ACLJ Action seeks to protect human rights around the world and we welcome your support. However, we need to know if you are not a U.S. citizen or green card holder to assist our legal compliance.
