Give With Confidence

You can give with confidence knowing every donation you make to First Liberty Institute is wisely stewarded and invested in the cases and initiatives that will preserve religious liberty today and for the coming generations. And with our network attorneys charging nothing to our clients, since 1997, First Liberty Institute has fought to defend and restore religious liberty in America.

Throughout our history, we have provided elite legal representation at no charge to our clients. We take pride in providing pro-bono legal assistance to people of all faiths who have been attacked or experienced discrimination due to their religious beliefs.

Multiplied Impact

First Liberty’s unique, innovative legal model – partnering with our legal network of the nation’s top attorneys who donate their time – makes it possible for us to deliver superior legal defense for each client while leveraging the value of every donation.

In fact, for every staff attorney we hire, we can unleash up to 20 network attorneys whose experience and specialization increase our chances of victory.

Your donation has a multiplied financial impact. So for every $1 we spend on a case, our volunteer attorney network donates $6 in legal time.

And that means every dollar you give goes a long way.

Winning Results

The expertise of our constitutional attorneys, combined with the best litigators across the nation, allows us to maintain a 90% win rate across all the legal matters we handle.

And that means you can give with confidence.

Dear Coach Kennedy,

I would like to say thank you. Your dedication to your faith and your commitment to the positive education of our youth is truly admirable. I am deeply grateful for your military service and for taking a courageous stance in protecting religious liberty rights for teachers and administrators.

If our First Amendment protects a player’s right to kneel in protest, it certainly protects your right to kneel in prayer.

I was shocked to learn that Bremerton High School suspended you after denying your request to continue your wholesome practice of giving thanks after football games.

The Bremerton School District’s actions violate the law and send the wrong message to coaches, young people, our communities, and our nation — a message of hostility to religious freedom and intolerance toward personal religious expression.

Please know that you are not alone in this difficult time — I support you and First Liberty as you continue to fight for religious freedom! Our schools need more coaches like you, our country needs more citizens like you, and our world needs more people like you.
