The Criminal Justice Legal Foundation is classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational foundation. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

The Foundation welcomes contributions by check, credit card (online or by phone), and encourages gifts of stock and bequests to help secure a future in the foundation's work.

CJLF is not a government agency and does not ask for or receive government funds. It is funded entirely through the tax-deductible contributions from individuals, businesses and philanthropies concerned about crime and the rule of law. CJLF keeps all information regarding its contributors strictly confidential.

Note: Contributions to either the general fund or the blog may be made with either a PayPal account or a credit card. Please disregard the difference in appearance of the buttons below. We need to have different buttons for technical reasons-- however, both buttons are from options provided by PayPal.

GENERAL PROGRAM SUPPORT

Tax-deductible contributions to the CJLF general program help support the Foundation's introduction of scholarly legal briefs on the most important criminal cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, its research and publications on criminal justice policy, and its public information effort which provides the media with a pro-law enforcement perspective on crime and criminal law issues.
SUPPORT FOR C&C BLOG

Maintaining the CJLF blog, crimeandconsequences.com, costs more than $50,000 each year in staff time, fees and overhead. CJLF encourages frequent C&C visitors to support the blog with tax-deductible contributions to help cover these costs and assure the blog continues to provide a forum for reporting and discussion of the issues influencing America's criminal justice system.

You can now also support CJLF when making purchases at amazon.com, through amazonsmile.com.
So shop away and support CJLF!
