The fight for religious freedom needs more champions

Join us today by donating via these unique giving options. Scroll down to learn more.

Give from your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

If you have a DAF, you can use FreeWill’s secure DAF-giving tool to help us defend the separation of church and state. This tool integrates with your DAF custodian automatically and saves you the extra step of notifying us about your gift or use Tax ID #53-0184647.


Give from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

IRA gifts are generally tax-free and can help fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution (if needed) while reducing your future tax burden. They can play a pivotal role in the movement to protect religious freedom. Please initiate a gift from your retirement account by using FreeWill’s secure IRA-giving tool or use Tax ID #53-0184647.


Give Stock

Did you know that next year’s tax return can also thrive when you donate appreciated stock to AU? Transferring stock to us means that you avoid capital gains tax. Plus, if you’ve owned the stock for more than one year and itemize deductions, you can take a charitable deduction for the full fair market value by using FreeWill’s secure stock-giving tool.


Give a gift subscription to Church & State Magazine

AU’s award-winning monthly magazine, Church & State covers every aspect of religious freedom in our society, from its historical underpinnings to the ever-present threat of religious extremism. Gift a subscription to a person, a school, a library, a lawmaker and beyond.


Make a tribute gift

Religious freedom is a legacy we inherit and pass on to future generations. AU has led the fight to protect it for over 75 years. Ensure that our work and your values endure by making a tribute gift. We will notify your honoree, or you may request your gift to remain anonymous.
