Guardians of Freedom

Make the fight for religious freedom a personal priority by supporting AU at a leadership level.

Guardians for Freedom make significant investments in AU’s ability to combat religious extremist organizations. We have the Constitution and popular opinion on our side and your support ensures we are a force to be reckoned with.

I philanthropically support many organizations for a variety of reasons, but AU is one of the few at the top of my list given its uniqueness and effectiveness in directing humankind onward and upward. Barbara J. Meislin “The Purple Lady,” Guardian of Freedom member since 1999
