American Civil Liberties Union Foundation

Development Department, NY
For more than 93 years, the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation (ACLU), has been at the forefront of virtually every major battle for civil liberties and equal justice in this country.  Principled and nonpartisan, the ACLU has offices in all 50 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico, and brings together the country's largest team of public interest lawyers, lobbyists, communication strategists, members and activists in the advancement of equality, fairness and freedom, especially for the most vulnerable in our society.

Nationwide, the ACLU currently raises more than $100 million annually, and is looking to significantly increase support throughout the duration of the campaign to expand the ACLU's programs and strengthen its affiliate network.
