Thank you! The ACLU of Hawaii accepts no government funds, so your gift is the lifeblood of our organization. Mahalo for your support.


Breaking news! 

(May 2013) Breaking news! A long-time friend of the Hawai‘i ACLU has pledged up to $20,000 to match – dollar for dollar – any new or increased donations by December 31, 2013. As an independent watchdog for the Bill of Rights, the ACLU does not accept government funding – our strength comes from the support of friends of civil liberties like you! Every donation counts – many thanks in advance.

Planned giving: You can raise up to $10K for the ACLU without spending a penny. How?

An exciting nationwide ACLU initiative called the Legacy Challenge works like this: You name the ACLU to receive a gift through your estate and our challenge donor – the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust – will make a donation today of 10% of your future gift’s value, up to $10,000.

Half of the matching funds are shared with the Hawaii affiliate. Even though your bequest is in the future, Hawaii gets the matching gift now to meet today’s priorities. Matching funds are limited – the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust has capped their matching pledge at $2 million. Learn more about this matching program by going to the national ACLU website at

Or, if you are ready to begin planning, contact the ACLU’s Office of Gift Planning directly. There are many ways that you can plan a legacy gift and have it qualify for the Legacy Challenge.  ACLU staff members are ready to help you get started. Contact the ACLU, toll-free, at 877-867-1025.
