Pacific Legal Foundation is a tax exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All donations of cash, property, and securities are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Our tax identification number is 94-2197343. Last year, approximately 53 percent of our donated funds come from individuals. Another 30 percent of our donated funds come from foundations, and 17 percent of our support was from small businesses and other organizations. Only through the generosity of our donors are we able to secure all Americans’ inalienable rights to live responsibly and productively in their pursuit of happiness.

To preserve our independence, PLF accepts no government funding. A charitable gift to PLF is an investment in individual liberty. We take our mission and our supporters seriously, and strive to put our donors’ investment to the most effective use in vindicating our constitutional rights.
