Donor-Advised Funds

Through DAF Direct it is now possible to recommend grants from your donor-advised fund directly to IJ from our website. A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

How does it work?

  1. Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
  2. Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free).
  3. Recommend grants to the charities you support.

Please fill out the amount you wish to donate from your DAF using the form to the right.


The Institute for Justice accepts donations through Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The Institute for Justice respects the privacy of our donors and their choice not to have personal information shared with others. The Institute does not and will not sell, rent, or trade donor information to organizations that use such information for commercial purposes.  Occasionally we make donor mailing lists available for one time use by selected nonprofits in return for donor lists from those organizations.  This helps IJ continue to grow.  Our donors may instruct that we exclude their information from any lists that we share.  All such requests — directed to Janell Cutrer, jcutrer@ij.org, membership coordinator, Institute for Justice, 901 N. Glebe Road Ste. 900, Arlington, VA 22203 — will be implemented immediately.
