Your support helps us defend civil liberties in the Ocean State.


Support the ACLU Foundation of Rhode Island.

Since 1959 the ACLU of Rhode Island has relied on your support to work diligently to uphold our fundamental freedoms in the Ocean State. Gifts to the ACLU Foundation of Rhode Island will be gratefully received in any amount.

ACLU of Rhode Island receives no government funding and never charges our clients for legal representation. Our existence depends entirely on private donations, foundation grants, donor advised funds, court-awarded legal fees from successful cases, and bequests.

Please note that we cannot issue a membership card for gifts to the Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) entity. Most Foundation donors choose to become card-carrying members of the Union as well.

If you would prefer to make your generous gift via check, please send a check written out to “The ACLU Foundation of Rhode Island” at 128 Dorrance St, Suite 400, Providence, RI 02903. Please email with any questions. Thank you!

The ACLU is comprised of two organizations, the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU Foundation. Contributions to the ACLU Foundation are tax deductible for charitable purposes, while ACLU membership dues are not. [?]
